COVID-19 has escalated rapidly and caused a sudden global economic loss. Supply chains are facing extensive disruptions and many businesses are in financial distress, or even on the verge of bankruptcy. For the economy to recover sustainably, many countries are placing a priority on green economic recovery and putting this at the heart of post-pandemic economic stimulus.
Government stimulus measures may include monetary policies such as cutting interest rates to direct government funding. Given the green recovery context, stimulus plans for climate change projects have emerged in many countries, including tax incentives, loan supports or subsidies for “green” investments. In total, spending and subsidies proposed or implemented for “green” purposes are worth more than 50 billion USD globally, demonstrating a promising movement towards boosting the global economy and mitigating climate change concerns.
This special issue will advance knowledge on green recovery and provide practical policies to both stimulate the economies and mitigate climate change concerns in post COVID-19 times.
