This article is part of a 5-part series which covers the V4 governments’ plans to utilise the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) earmarked by the EU for reinvigorating the economies from the lengthy economic hardships imposed by the COVID-19 epidemic. Czechia is currently just behind Slovakia with its plan to implement spending on green technologies, and while its choice to focus on railway infrastructure and electrification is promising, the overall plan lacks clarity, which could hamper it in the long run.
The most recent Czech recovery plans were ranked second among V4 countries by Green Recovery Tracker with a score of 25 per cent of the total funding of 7.9 billion euros assessed as green spending, significantly below the EU’s 37 per cent benchmark.
