COVID-19 has quickly developed from a global health crisis into a severe economic one. But this may be an opportunity to restructure our economies and channel funds into green investments. Politically informed smart green transformations will prioritize win-wins over costlier reform processes that risk turning into dead ends and make sure as much environmental conditionality as possible is added to the non-green bailouts that will be part of economic recovery packages.
