This briefing sets out what is needed for a successful 2021 spending review.
It explains how decisive action now, supported by targeted public investment, is cheaper than the cost of inaction and will reduce impacts from climate change on low income families.
A spending review that invests in the green recovery is also critical to meeting other government objectives, including driving job creation, skills development and levelling up. This can be achieved cost effectively, whilst delivering financial co-benefits and billions in savings, for example, improved productivity through reduced illness and deaths from poor air quality and homes.
