Description

The Covid-19 pandemic has revealed the vulnerability in our societies to the mutually reinforcing impacts of growing inequalities, environmental degradation and climate change. Social investment can strengthen societal resilience by simultaneously generating economic, employment, social inclusion and environmental benefits. Since 2008, however, it has fallen short of mounting needs, particularly at the local level.
This event calls for more and better social investment, especially in infrastructure, as part of an integrated response to the Covid-19 crisis, the climate emergency, and rising social inequalities. It focuses on the challenges faced by local authorities, and proposes a renewed role of PDBs.
