In cooperation with the OECD, the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) has launched a survey to collect information on the impacts of COVID19 for local and regional governance.

Consisting of 15 questions related to the general impact of COVID-19 on subnational entities, on subnational entity finance and exit strategies and socio-economic recovery plans, the questionaire specifically targets local and regional government employees working and responding on behalf of regions, municipalities, subnational government-related entities or non-governmental entities.

The goal of the survey is to shed light on the consequences of implemented lockdowns at the local and regional level, to differentiate between different types of measures taken and to evaluate their actual effectiveness with special focus on the impact of governance on the economy and subnational government finances.

On the basis of the answers provided the CoR and OECD will compile a joint summary paper, which will be used to inform the OECD's work on the territorial impact of the crisis, and will be integrated into the CoR's monitoring and political activities. 

To take part in the survey and submit your answers by the 30 June 2020, please click here.

The survey is available in all official EU languages and can be completed within ten minutes. All responses will be kept confidential.
