June 19, 2020

Local and city-region authorities have played a vital role in leading emergency responses to the pandemic. They are now at the forefront of planning the recovery effort and are taking the lead in rebuilding and reforming their economies. The responses of local government, mayors and combined authorities to these tasks - and the funding challenges they face - will define the future of communities for the next generation. This session will explore the barriers to and opportunities for making local economic recovery an opportunity for lasting reform.
