The scale of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic has started to break inertia in policymaking. Industrial policy is seeing a revival as governments face the simultaneous challenges of securing economic recovery, addressing deep inequalities magnified by the crisis, transitioning to a low-carbon economy and adapting to climate change. What needs to be fundamentally different in post-pandemic industrial policy, which will need to reconcile ecological, social and economic ambitions?
Join us for a virtual dialogue with Committee for Development Policy (CDP) members José Antonio Ocampo, Adriana Abdenur (moderator), Ha-Joon Chang, Arunabha Ghosh, and Kori Udovički, and UNDESA Assistant Secretary-General and Chief Economist Elliott Harris and UNIDO’s Smeeeta Fokeer.
