The economies of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA) have been negatively affected by the global COVID-19 pandemic. Government officials, policy makers and experts discussed on 25 June priority steps for building back greener in the region. The discussion was based on the OECD policy brief “COVID-19 and Greening the Economies of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia”.

Recommendations suggest ways to ensure that governments align efforts to support economic recovery with their objectives on climate change, biodiversity and wider environmental protection.
