Global Mayors Launch COVID-19 Economic Recovery Task Force
The C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, a global network of the world’s megacities committed to addressing climate change, recently launched a Global Mayors COVID-19 Recovery Task Force to improve the long-term urban resilience of cities. Dedicated toward minimising the economic impact of the current health crisis, the Task Force will focus its efforts on sustainable public investment activities to create a “new normal" for city economies, while also addressing issues of climate change at the local level.
The Taskforce will serve as an exchange platform for mayors of the world’s largest cities to share best practices and important lessons learnt on fighting the pandemic. Their insights will be shared via policy papers, briefings and webinars. To support the work of the Task Force as well as its other city partners, C40 has also launched a new COVID-19 Portal. The Portal provides cities with specific information, media and resources to guide their COVID-19 responses and recovery activities.
