For the 16th edition (September 17th, 2020), we highlight strategies for an equitable recovery in the most deprived parts of cities across the world; how preparations for the forthcoming northern winter are addressing compound risks of seasonal diseases and COVID19 on high risk communities; the efforts to overcome long term unemployment among youth, and how digital innovation is being used to improve food supply chain management, and adapt traditional on-site and face-to-face resilience building.

Strategies such as housing tenure and job security schemes, and creating or maintaining effective use of publicspace, can reduce unauthorised working and living conditions and mitigate transmission risks in the most deprived areas across the world. The EU’s Youth Guarantee is one response to under-25’s unemployment, which aims to ensure a good-quality offer of employment, continued education, an apprenticeship or a traineeship within four months of becoming unemployed or leaving formal education.
