Vital Cities and Citizens publishes policy brief: Conditions for urban resilience to COVID-19

Vital Cities and Citizens publishes the first policy brief within the Rotterdam impact study COVID-19. The project is a co-production of the Erasmus Initiative Vital Cities and Citizens and the City of Rotterdam. The aim of the Rotterdam project is to indicate the impact of the corona crisis on the city.

With the acquired knowledge and insight into facts and figures of this Rotterdam project, the city of Rotterdam can increase the resilience of the city and its inhabitants. The central question of the first policy brief is: Which conditions influence how fast and how Rotterdam will come back stronger out of the Covid-19 pandemic? Professor Jurian Edelenbos and Dr. Jan Fransen answer this question based on a literature review.
