While governments and businesses around the world take action to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 crisis, it is a critical moment for the world to “build back better” to redesign our economies and societies to become more sustainable, resilient, and inclusive. Article 6 is an important tool for raising ambition and accelerating actions against climate crisis. Although detailed rules are still being negotiated, with a good design and cooperation between countries and other stakeholders, we can make a greater impact on both climate change and sustainable development of societies.
