Philipp Rode speaks at the Third Local and Regional Governments Forum on the 2030 Agenda



LSE Cities Executive Director Philipp Rode spoke at the Third Local and Regional Governments Forum on the 2030 Agenda.

The Forum highlighted the rapid actions local and regional governments have taken in preventing and responding to the COVID-19 pandemic through universal public service delivery and shared examples of how they can act as the catalysts in the bottom-up transformation towards sustainability and resilience after the pandemic; and emphasize the importance of multilevel governance, sound local finances, and decentralized cooperation and territorial cohesion in the aftermath of the outbreak.

Philipp shared insights from the Emergency Governance Initiative (EGI) led by LSE Cities, United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), and the World Association of the Major Metropolises (Metropolis).
