The recent COVID-19 crisis, principally a zoonotic disease spill-over which was instigated by the world’s increasingly disrupted relationship with nature, is but another wake-up call to the world. The call for ‘Green Recovery’ and ‘Building Forward Better’ is a sign that indeed the world, including Africa, is increasingly aware of the need to define and adopt development trajectories that do not jeopardize our long term planetary health. 

Building on this momentum, WWF has built up a partnership with various key organizations around the development and implementation of tangible green recovery policy briefs and action plans. For a link to key outputs in this regard, please refer to the following:
