Green Economic Recovery and Environmental Management

Background

As restrictions are easing and economies are opening, governments are beginning to unveil their economic recovery plans. However, there is a lack of motivation to strengthen climate change adaptations and environmental management in the recovery plans.  This is because the recovery outlook seems to follow the ‘growth first and green it when possible’ approach of existing development plans. Globally many governments for stimulating economic growth in the economic recovery plans rolled back environmental regulations and taxes, and increased fossil-fuel intensive infrastructure and electricity. Global COemissions are set to jump by 1.5 gigatonnes this year, led by a rebound in coal demand, mainly from the power section. It would be the second-largest annual rise in emissions in history (IEA, 2021). This will endanger the achievement of the Paris agreement on climate change and several sustainable development goals.

This shows the importance of low-carbon mechanisms, climate change tackling policies and environmental management besides the economic recovery strategies.

With this background, This special issue aims to provide several empirical, theoretical, or case studies with practical policy implications on ways to achieve green economic recovery, mitigate greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions and manage the environment in the post-COVID-19 era.

The special issue of the Journal of Environmental Planning and Management aims to collect papers that provide a new perspective on ways to mitigate GHG emissions and manage the environment in the economic recovery of post-COVID-19.  The special issue aims to develop insights in this area for regulators and legislators for shaping policies on climate change, environmental management, and green economic recovery.

Papers may deal with, but not limited, to the following:

  • Special measures require for green economic recovery and environmental management
  • Policies for mitigating GHG emissions in the low fossil fuel price era
  • Role of green recovery in restarting economic growth and mitigating GHG emissions
  • Analyzing the cross-sectoral impacts of green economic recovery and climate change mitigating plans in the post-COVID-19 era
  • Social and employment outcomes of green recovery and climate change adaptation
  • Ways to promote low-carbon competitiveness
  • Role of governments in promoting green recovery and mitigating GHG emissions in the post-COVID-19 era
  • Monitoring long-term impacts of environmental management packages
  • Fiscal reforms needed for green recovery to cope with climate change
  • Monetary policy and green economic recovery in the post-COVID-19 era
  • Green finance strategies for mitigating GHG emissions in the post-COVID-19 era
  • How to unlock private investment needed for climate change mitigation plans in the post-COVID-19 era?
  • Role of renewable energy in tackling climate change in the post-COVID-19 era.
