Metropolitan Talks: metropolitan governance responses and challenges towards the COVID19

Monday, April 27, from 10:00 to 13:00 (GMT-5)

Within the framework of the activities of the Mexican National Metropolitan Network (RENAMET), in coordination with the Cities Alliance, the general purpose of this Metropolitan Talk is to contribute to the implementation of Agenda 2030 and in particular SDG 11, "make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable".

In particular, and in view of the remains represented by the pandemic, the conversation seeks to identify immediate responses and challenges to the COVID19, as well as to analyze how these strengthen the process of metropolitan governance in Mexico and abroad.
