COVID-19 has created a critical juncture in the evolution of cities, but there has been limited focus on its urban dimensions in the global South. Drawing on the experiences of grassroots organisations, international agencies and other key urban stakeholders, International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) has co-created a framework that provides a unifying urban vision to inform and resource a transformative urban recovery process.

Holistic interventions will be vital to address the complex exclusions and risks facing low-income urban residents. Synthesising evidence on the pandemic’s impacts in urban areas, this issue paper outlines a set of policy priorities and develops a framework with guiding principles for co-creating inclusive, forward-looking pathways out of the crisis.

The framework will help key stakeholders – including health officials, local and national governments and international agencies – create an equitable and transformative urban recovery. 

Download the paper from IIED's publications library, and find out more about the framework in the recent URBANET blog "COVID-19 in Cities – Pathways Towards Transformative Urban Recovery".
