Accelerating climate and disaster resilience and low-carbon development through the COVID-19 recovery

This technical note presents an assessment framework for designing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) recovery interventions that are geared toward accelerating climate and disaster resilience and low-carbon development. The scale of the COVID-19 crisis and the associated size of the response mean that decisions governments make now will influence systems, create assets, and define development directions well into the future. ADB developed this technical note to help its developing member countries in moving forward, with the assessment framework intended to serve as a tool that decision-makers can use to select and prioritize a package of recovery interventions that will collectively achieve recovery, climate, and resilience objectives.
