OECD's Note for Cities Policy Responses

13 May 2020 |

Cities may be better equipped than the rest of their country to respond to the COVID-19 crisis because of their well-developed health care facilities.

Short and medium term responses provided by cities are clustered around six categories: i) social distancing; ii) workplace and commuting; iii) vulnerable groups; iv) local service delivery; v) support to business; and vi) communication, awareness raising and digital tools.

This note also includes new information on how cities are progressively exiting the lockdown andon lessons learned in terms of density, mobility and digitalisation. Itconcludes with action-oriented guidance to build back better cities, building on previous work on urban resilience.
