This Regional Policy Brief aims to provide an overview of the socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in the UNECE region; identify urban economic resilience needs of cities; and offer policy recommendations, best practices, tools and mechanisms for sustainable urban economic recovery.

Policy recommendations are in the following four thematic areas:

  1. Urban governance
  2. Socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic
  3. Nature-based solutions and climate neutrality
