Overview: This panel reports on the main findings of the research project ‘Post-COVID-19 stakeholder recovery: How to rebuild society and business in Latin America to avoid the climate crisis’. The primary purpose of this project was to provide public policy recommendations on measures undertaken by LAC countries to rebuild their economic growth opportunities and enhance the likelihood of decent work opportunities (SDG 8) in post-COVID-19 scenarios with a focus on resilience and adaptation to climate change risks (SDG 13).
The study employed varied futures study methodologies and it was conducted simultaneously in Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Jamaica, Mexico and Peru. Empirical data were collected through workshops (focus groups) with representatives from business, government, academia and civil society in late 2020 and early 2021.
