Green recovery is an unprecedented opportunity to address a triple crisis of debt distress, biodiversity loss, and climate change impacts in developing countries and emerging economies. Therefore, this session presented practical examples of innovative approaches and financing mechanisms to drive a successful green recovery. Green recovery practitioners discussed the importance of engaging the private sector in green recovery. Innovative solutions for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to contribute to green recovery and examples of implementing business partnerships to achieve sustainable development goals were showcased. Moreover, case examples on integrating natural capital priorities in COVID-19 economic recovery plans and budgets were presented. By the end of this session, participants were aware of new projects and programs driving the green recovery, inspired by examples and ideas to sort out the multiple technical, political, and financial barriers hindering green recovery.
