Global Solutions Dialogue

Urbanization (and Infrastructure): Sustainable responses to COVID-19 pandemic

The Global Solutions Initiative (GSI) in cooperation with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is organizing the Global Solutions Dialogue as a moderated global exchange. It will bring together ca. 30 international experts from academia, policy, finance and development cooperation and mobilize dedicated inputs from the OECD and ADBI.

The Global Solutions Dialogue aims at discussing and bringing policy solutions on 1) how can the negative effects of COVID-19 be mitigated at the urban level 2) which policies are effective in the short-term and sustainable in the long run, 3) how should they be sequenced? The objective is to identify approaches that work and devise context-sensitive strategies for their scaling and mainstreaming.
