Global Compendium of Practices on Local Economic and Financial Recovery


March 11th, 2021

In order to learn from cities, it is important to take stock of their experiences and to use these in order to further discussions on how to build urban economic resilience in the midst of a crisis such as COVID-19. The Global
Compendium of Practices is a compilation of city case studies directly derived from information provided either directly by the local government or from specialists with leading knowledge about the city. It is not the compendium’s purpose to collect good practices, considering the context-specificity of practices and the ongoing nature of the crisis. Instead, this compendium is intended to derive lessons learned in order to inform the development of strategies for the future of cities in crisis. Nevertheless, the practices presented below are the effective practices that have so far helped the cities to withstand the worst effects of the pandemic and start their recovery process.
