Rebuilding after COVID-19 – The Opportunity for a Just Recovery

As we start to think about life beyond COVID-19, many are yearning for a return to "normal", while others -- especially in the international development and environmental justice communities -- are envisioning a just recovery, where we address long-standing issues of poverty and inequity to create a just and sustainable future. 

In an article featured in the online magazine Policy Options, Chris Dendys, Executive Director of Results Canada, shares eight lessons COVID-19 teaches us about the world we have and the world we need.  She concludes her article with this global call to action:

"As global leaders invest in responding, reconstructing and rebuilding at home and abroad, let’s not repair our world to restore its existing and persistent state of inequity. We have the opportunity to learn from the lessons of COVID-19 and rebuild our world for the better. Together, we can aspire to the world we need: a healthier, equitable, and more resilient world for all."
