Cities on the Frontline is a weekly speaker series co-organized by the Resilient Cities Network and The World Bank Group’s City Resilience Program from March 2020.
The purpose of the series is to share knowledge to help cities respond to the pandemic crisis and to plan towards recovery with resilience. It is a platform for open and honest learning conversations between practitioners in cities and governments, and partners supporting them. Each week, the series brings together different experts and city practitioners to discuss specific topics and share tangible examples. Over 5,500 participants from around the world have attended the series, with a significant portion of the attendees being from city governments.
