COVID-19 Recovery Action Plan for Informal Settlements in the ECE Region

cover front COVID19 RAP

This Recovery Action Plan shows that appropriate interventions can simultaneously have health, safety and other socioeconomic benefits. The twin goals of increased pandemic resilience, and the achievement of the SDGs can be advanced simultaneously. Additionally, a country’s disaster preparedness can make all the difference, therefore, greater integration and formalization of the informal communities within the broader formal markets is a critical step in the process of achieving greater pandemic resilience, alongside a more just, equitable, and sustainable future.

The measures proposed in this COVID-19 Recovery Action Plan are dealing with both the new challenges, created by COVID-19, and the pre-existing ones.
