The briefers will be the Executive Director of UN Habitat Maimunah Mohd Sharif and the UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner. Please note the briefing is embargoed until the policy brief is out on 28 July.The report will give an overview of the stark impact of COVID-19 on cities so far and will demonstrate how the crisis has exacerbated existing inequalities and development deficits and has thrown the UN’s sustainable urbanization policies in to question.
