ABSTRACT

Cities on the Frontline: Managing the Coronavirus Crisis   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Document: "'This CIDOB [Barcelona Centre for International Affairs] Report examines how 12 cities around the world - Milan, Barcelona, Berlin, London, Vienna, Zurich, San Francisco, Chicago, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Melbourne and Hong Kong - have managed the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] crisis and provides lessons to help guide urban governance in times of pandemics. Some of the key issues addressed are how decentralisation and multi-stakeholder cooperation are essential to effectively govern complex, uncertain scenarios and generate context-specific responses; the need to rethink cities to make them healthier and more liveable without sacrificing density; how to tackle the impending economic recession and social exclusion without neglecting the commitment to the ecological transition; and why these challenges make international collaboration between cities more important than ever.'"
