Cities Policy Responses: Tackling Coronavirus (COVID-19) contributing to a Global Effort

Case studies and best practices

Based on desk research and selected contributions by focal points of the OECD Champion Mayors for Inclusive Growth Initiative, this note explores how cities around the world, in close coordination with national governments, are working to protect their residents, halt the spread of the virus and protect their local economies during these unprecedented times. The examples collected from several dozen cities are clustered into six categories of policy responses, which have been deployed at varying degrees depending on the level of advancement of the pandemic: communication and awareness raising; workplace practices and commuting patterns; social distance and confinement; targeted measures for vulnerable groups; local service delivery, notably water and waste and support to business and economic recovery.
