The rapid and ongoing spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to societal lockdowns and unprecedented policy measures in most countries around the world. These COVID-19 response measures have resulted in a multifaceted shock on the world economy pushing many countries into a deep recession and affecting both supply and demand.

The key question is whether and how the COVID-19 shock will affect emissions and climate change mitigation efforts in the longer term. Researchers in the NAVIGATE project are currently investigating the implications of COVID-19 and recovery packages on climate change mitigation action, mainly focusing on three categories of impacts that have the potential to substantially influence climate policy developments: Macro-economic impacts, impacts on demand and lifestyles and impacts on inequality. In this webinar, the researchers will present concepts and first results of their analyses.
