What is there to learn from the COVID-19 health crisis? One thing is certain: it has made the value of preparedness and resilience dramatically clear. How to prevent the avoidable and to prepare for the unavoidable, that is what scientists address in this brochure and try to formulate an answer to.

As part of the Horizon 2020 programme, RECEIPT, in cooperation with CASCADES, contributed to the section on ‘Covid-19 lessons for rethinking how we prepare for the climate change crisis’, where we took a closer look at the cascading effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on trade, supply chains and financial systems.

Via recent publications, we have summarised insights and further reflected on some general lessons that can be drawn from the pandemic with regard to climate change impact chains.
