The COVID-19 pandemic presents real and immediate risks to people’s health and livelihoods. What is evident from the Covid-19 crisis, and similar to the climate crisis, is the importance of listening to and acting early on scientific evidence. In emerging from this challenge and hardship, going back to business as usual is not an option. Ministershavetheopportunity and duty to increase resilience and build back better: Governments must respond to this disaster in a way that protects people’s health and makes our societies more resilient towards other crises, notably the climate emergency. Ministers must use the                         Petersberg Dialogue to send a clear message to the world: Climate action remains a                             non-negotiable global priority.
