Recovery and climate : what actions for the French regions? Towards an ambitious climate and social transition (French)
To recover from the Covid-19 crisis and fight the climate one, French regions have to implement strong structural policies, making our societies more resilient and sharply reducing greenhouses gas emissions. Unify projet partner, Réseau Action Climat France, calls French regions to use the opportunity of recovery plans to invest in the ecological transition. Supporting low emission mobility, house renovation, the development of renewable energies and the transformation of the industry require the reorientation of all financial tools, including EU funds. This would create new jobs, strengthen the local economy and decrease the level of emissions of these activities. Besides mitigation, regions must begin to adapt to climate change.
