Building on the many hard lessons brought by the pandemic and the inspiring and creative responses developed to contain it, the UN-Habitat Report studies the most important impacts of COVID-19 in cities and explores the forces shaping their future: urban form and function, poverty and socioeconomic inequalities, urban economy and governance structures. The report explores the spatial dimensions of the pandemic and identifies the necessary shifts in urban forms that can mitigate the spread of future contagions, reducing their adverse impacts while making cities more prosperous, green and fair.
