This 4th edition (June 4, 2020) is focussed on gender (mental health and pay), the livelihood challenges faced by SME’s and ecotourism operators, the leadership role that local government can play in supporting the opening up of cities (contact tracing, and preparing for further outbreaks), and the changing demands on our infrastructure systems (housing, recycling) that need to be part of a sustainable and equitable recovery.

Produced by The University of Manchester, UK (Professor Duncan Shaw, Dr Jennifer Bealt, Dr Ayham Fattoum, David Powell, and Professor Ruth Boaden) in partnership with the Global Resilient Cities Network (Sam Kernaghan)
