Building Recovery on Nature

Most countries are responding to the impacts of COVID-19 on society, people, and economy with massive programs often in the trillions of dollar range (Cook and Taylor, 2020). Few countries utilize these enormous resources to improve or transform economic activities in a way that would increase the viability of the planet. The Green Stimulus Index shows for selected countries the positive and negative contributions in terms of a more ecological economy of the stimuluse packages. However, nature-based solutions have the potential to provide large economic benefits (Cook and Taylor, 2020).
