Post COVID-19 Recovery

In mid-2020, the UNESCO Chair on Food, Biodiversity and Sustainability Studies and the Canadian Commission for UNESCO assembled a multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral collection of scholars and practitioners to envision how government infrastructure investment could build a greener, more resilient, and more equitable future in Canada.

The Building Back Better Post COVID-19 Task Force wrote a position paper and series of policy briefs published through iPolitics that provided targeted infrastructure investment and policy considerations. The policy briefs focused on three key investment areas: Food Systems (led by Alison Blay-Palmer), Green Infrastructure (led by Deborah Van Nijnatten), and Ecosystems and Biodiversity (led by Liette Vasseur).


A Food Systems policy note series published by iPolitics is forthcoming.
