“How can economies recover from a recession using sustainable infrastructure?”
Investment in construction is a time-tested method in helping an economy recover after a recession. It allows for large sums of capital to be focused on projects that generate a large number of jobs and leave lasting benefits. Given the ever-pressing challenge of climate change, a focus on the construction of sustainable infrastructure would have the added benefit of preventing further damage from climate change. This is why a resilience and sustainability-focused Green Recovery would be a logical course of action.
