BUILDING A HEALTHIER AND MORE RESILIENT CITY - The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly demonstrated the need to integrate public health considerations into urban resilience efforts. Given its broad spectrum of impacts, different types of resilience are needed. Resilience related to health can be created through strengthening the overall public health system enabling environmental conditions to enable people to lead healthy lives during and after disasters and emergencies. Cities must be at the centre of this need of multi-level governance and multi-sector programmes, to be able address a range of complex health determinants as well as tackle existing inequities. By strengthening an urban health approach, local governments play an important role in reducing health disparities.

Policy Discussion: Economy & Society
FUTURE OF WORK: PEOPLE AND GOVERNMENT - The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on urban dwellers has placed a focus on the spatial and socio-economic aspects of cities. Many local governments are now concerned not only with the number of cases and deaths, but also with the immense economic impact and effects on long-term prosperity. It has been predicted that the economic and social development impacts of this crisis will be felt for decades. Therefore, it will be a crucial challenge for local governments to navigate the financial and socio-economic consequences in the months and years to come. This is an opportunity to depart from business-as usual while embracing transformative change.

CLIMATE RESILIENT URBAN PLANNING - As the world’s cities have grown, urban design has actually made many of them healthy alternatives to suburban or rural living. The COVID-19 pandemic has given awareness of how vital the roles of urban infrastructure and environment are in supporting the efforts to overcome it as well as to prevent similar outbreaks in the future. Therefore, urban planning might be rearranged to develop a more pandemic proof city.

COLLABORATIVE GOVERNANCE: PUBLIC SECTOR INVESTMENT AND FINANCE - The involvement of stakeholders in local affairs has gained space in cities governance discussions. This attention extends to empower a broad range of stakeholders ensuring the information is well distributed and enable appropriate actions from stakeholders to encourage collaborative financing, leading to innovative approaches to collaborating with the private sector through the implementation of public sector investments. Whether because of the desire to learn from the investment-fueled high growth, respond to the rapid pace of urbanization and its associated infrastructure needs, take advantage of technological change in telecommunications and energy or climate change mitigation, governments have recognized the need to act collaboratively in the long term.
