The COVID- 19 pandemic is an unprecedented crisis that is currently claiming lives and disrupting people’s livelihoods. The pandemic has hindered progress towards sustainable development and exposed the prevalence of poverty, weakness of health systems and fragile global cooperation. It has also has caused a drastic slowdown of global economic activity and mobility during the first quarter of 2020 which in turn impacts people’s livelihoods. However, this economic slowdown has pushed down global energy demand and emissions to unprecedented low levels. This impact must not be a temporary reduction in emissions, but an opportunity for a low-carbon pathway. As countries prepare to roll out economic recovery plans, it is important to consider their impact on sustainable development. This policy brief addresses a range of policies that pave the way for a more resilient, sustainable, and low-carbon future in the UAE and other countries with similar socioeconomic conditions. Leadership and cooperation will play a crucial role in allowing for a climate friendly economic recovery from this crisis.
