"While it is important that the AU recognises that economic recovery from COVID-19 provides an opportunity to rebuild economies in ways that address social needs, protect ecologies and lower emissions, one of the main weaknesses of the plan is that it does not sufficiently consider the drivers of the problems addressed through the five action areas. How the root causes of problems are understood is critical in shaping responses that achieve effective, just and sustainable outcomes."
