Webinar: Learning from Cities in Crises – Metropolitan Perspective on Fragility and Resilience

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated how city managers have responded to challenges working with limited resources and frameworks that are not designed to respond to an emergency on this scale. There is now a consensus among the international urban and metropolitan community on the need for new and adaptive tools not only to face the pandemic but to prepare for the world to come. 

When it comes to the metropolitan dimension, further governance challenges arise, and increased coordination between different institutions and between different urban thematics is more needed than ever. This webinar by Metropolis & UNDP aims to identify solutions for cities that can help to address specific challenges that are emerging during these tumultuous times.
