Council commences advisory process on economic recovery policy for the COVID-19 crisis

The Council for the Environment and Infrastructure (Rli) has initiated an advisory process on economic recovery policy for the COVID-19 crisis. The main question is: With which investments or other policy measures in the physical environment can the government stimulate economic recovery and structurally support the transition towards a sustainable and vibrant economy in the long term?

The Council will focus on policy areas associated with the physical environment. It will develop a concise framework to assess the contribution of specific government interventions (investments or other policy measures) to economic recovery and the groundwork being laid for long-term sustainable economic development. The Council will also attempt to propose interventions and give an initial impression of their nature.
The Council anticipates issuing its report in July 2020.
