It is true that around the world, cities have paid a high price for the COVID-19 pandemic. /World Bank, WeForum, 11 May 2021/
Indeed, we need a green and sustainable recovery.
Regarding a green recovery, we should really focus on energy-efficient building retrofits, municipal waste and water management, and urban transport.
We also need a sustainable recovery ensuring a competitive business environment, access to excellent universities and a safety-smart environment for families and companies.
All in all, we need both sides of the same coin: a green climate-smart growth plan and a sustainable safety-smart social environment.
