Cities on the Frontline: Urban Informality


Apr 16, 2020


08:30 AM



You are cordially invited to the 6th edition of our Speakers Series on Cities on the Frontline, exploring how cities around the world are responding to Covid-19.  For this week’s session, we will welcome our colleagues from Cities Alliance and Slum Dwellers International to share about “Inclusive approaches for tackling COVID-19 in informal settlements”. 
Informal settlements and their residents are integral to the cities and economies of which they are part and there is an increasing need for inclusive approaches to tackling the COVID-19 pandemic. This session will focus on suitable approaches to managing and responding to the pandemic in the global South and how Cities in their response to COVID-19 can protect their most poor and vulnerable by responding in a more inclusive and locally appropriate ways. We hope that this session will also help cities who are thinking about long term recovery and how to manage future disease outbreaks in dense informal settlements.
Please register here for the session.
Cities in the Frontline is jointly organized by the Global Resilient Cities Network and the World Bank City Resilience Program. For access to the previous sessions’ materials, please see this page that is being updated regularly.
