Today, C40 Cities announced the launch of a mayoral-led task force to accelerate sustainable economic recovery from the COVID-19 crisis. C40 mayors are already sharing knowledge and expertise to overcome the immediate health crisis. The Global Mayors COVID-19 Recovery Task Force will see leading mayors worldwide collaborate to achieve an economic recovery from COVID-19 that enables people to get back to work, while preventing climate breakdown from becoming an even bigger crisis that halts the global economy and threatens the lives and livelihoods of people everywhere. The mayors will discuss how to use huge public investment in the recovery to create a “new normal” for city economies, based on eliminating pollution and poverty, improving public health and increasing resilience to shocks.
