Green Recovery Fund Campaign by RSPB

The RSPB have launched a campaign asking Finance Minister Conor Murphy to establish a Green Recovery Fund for Northern Ireland within the proposed budget.

Highlighting the power of nature to support health and wellbeing, and combat climate change, the RSPB note that Northern Ireland has lost more nature than anywhere else in the UK. By investing in a Green Recovery Plan there is opportunity to help turn this around. The RSPB state that a green recovery would be a chance to revive our world and build a better, greener and fairer future for Northern Ireland.

A Green Recovery Fund could enable the Government to invest in plans and solutions in order to rebuild the economy and address the nature and climate emergencies which would help create a longer term approach to recovery. This strategy could ensure that public money and Covid-19 rescue packages not only revive the economy, but restore nature, help reduce carbon emissions and create much-needed green jobs.
