The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that it is not possible to separate the protection of health from other public services. The current situation has also opened up new spaces for collaboration between actors working on different levels and areas to respond together to joint challenges.
The Global Platform for the Right to the City, Habitat International Coalition and United Cities and Local Governments have come together to organize a collective dialogue between United Nations Special Rapporteurs, civil society organizations and local and regional governments.
This dialogue aims to strengthen and support the collaboration, by identifying possible areas and channels of cooperation and collaboration with civil society organizations and local governments under the framework of Habitat Rights and the Right to the City.
