To address the post-pandemic economic recovery, the governments of LAC countries are currently designing a set of public policy measures aimed at boosting public and private investment, with the goal of stimulating the economy and generating employment. These decisions will chart the course of economic development for the next decade, accelerating or delaying progress on climate change. To this end, the Climate Change Unit of UNEP's Office for LAC has developed an evidence-based analysis customized to each country with a sectoral approach, using the Green Economy Model (GEM), to assess the cost of proposed public policy interventions and investments in the light of the COVID-19 recovery plans, and the resulting economic, social and climate impacts. The analysis provides evidence that low-emission, climate-resilient strategies are viable interventions to stimulate stronger and more suitable economic growth and social empowerment compared to the business as usual. The report for Panamá is the first one of the Caribbean countries to be completed. The report is needed in EN and ES so that international and local communities can read and have access to its results.
