STEP 3


Securing societal and political support

Overview

The pandemic has exacerbated inequality. Lower-paid workers - including the informally employed, women, immigrants, and low-skilled workers – have been hit particularly hard. Over the medium and long term, rising inflation, particularly for food prices, and pandemic-related disruptions in education may increase within-country inequality further. Guiding the global recovery towards a more equitable development path requires a comprehensive stakeholder consultation to address the specific needs of those vulnerable populations.

Objective

To ensure participatory approaches to recovery planning that integrate, into recovery packages, the just transition principle, whole-of-society approaches, gender equality and women’s leadership drawn from NDC planning and implementation. This step also aims to build a stronger case in support of a green recovery that can be presented to decision-makers and relevant stakeholders.

Benefits

Ensuring societal and political support through stakeholder consultation and advocacy will increase the chances of delivering key measures and achieving a just transition towards a green economy. This step also helps to identify and advocate for NDC measures that target improvements for women, youth, indigenous populations and other vulnerable groups.

Outputs/outcome

At this stage, all stakeholders, including key decision-makers, have been informed of the importance and benefits of a green recovery and are ready to support green recovery measures.
