Local online workshop “Building urban economic resilience during and after COVID-19 in Tirana, Albania”

Participants (M/F): 20 (7/12)

Main Objectives: • To provide information on the project to the Tirana City government and stakeholders and to receive a feedback from the participants on how the project could be implemented in the city; • To familiarize the participants with the global diagnostic and planning tool on building urban resilience for local economic and financial response and recovery in the context of COVID-19, developed within the project and to be applied in the city of Tirana; • To support strengthening the capacity of the local government and local stakeholders by introducing the key concepts and issues of urban (economic) resilience and the UN ‘building back better’ approach.

Description: The COVID-19 pandemic is far more than a health crisis. It is affecting societies and economies at their core. While the impact of the pandemic varies from country to country, it has increased poverty and inequalities at a global scale and made achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development even more urgent. To support countries in their efforts to address the crisis, the United Nations developed a UN framework for the immediate socio-economic response to COVID-19, which highlights the need to “empower local governments; scale up community and city level resilience” as core components for recovery. To implement this framework, the UN Regional Economic Commissions (UNECE, UNECA, UN ESCWA, UN ELCAC, UN ESCAP) together with UNCDF and UN-Habitat are working on a joint project: “Building Urban Economic Resilience during and after COVID-19”. This project promotes the “recovering better” principle by developing measures for planning and building resilient cities, advocating for an approach that is multi-hazard, multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder; promoting the green and circular economy; overcoming inequalities; and assisting the most vulnerable groups.
