UCLG, Metropolis and LSE Cities Launch the Emergency Governance Initiative
The COVID-19 pandemic has made it clear that suitable frameworks and action plans for governing “in emergency mode” are crucially needed, not only to respond to immediate health crises, but also to prepare for long-term emergencies such as climate change or the global housing crisis. The Emergency Governance Initiative for Cities and Regions (EGI) was jointly launched by UCLG, LSE Cities and Metropolis to build and disseminate knowledge on building resilience as well as on adapting and responding to complex emergencies.
Against this backdrop the EGI regularly publishes Analytics Notes with the objective to collect and analyse governance information, as well as quarterly policy briefs, focused on providing propositional commentary on reform agendas and governance innovations. The initiative is part of a set of programmes launched by UCLG, Metropolis, LSE Cities and other organisations that include the Cities4GlobalHealth platform and the #BeyondtheOutbreak Live Learning Experiences.
