Since the last issue of the Newsletter issued earlier last year, life has changed for us all. This issue presents the activities that, since then, UN-Habitat and partners have conducted to highlight the role of territories and urban-rural linkages in responding to challenges generated by the pandemic.
This edition includes insights from nine global webinars organized between May and December 2020. It also contains short articles on urban-rural linkages, such as an experimental framework for new approaches in urban-rural planning and governance from Thuringia, Germany, and a short piece on the key role of small and intermediary cities as part of the development of a national strategy in Morocco.
Find out more in this edition about market cities, the importance of urban-rural linkages for biodiversity and climate change, the first international conference of the Urban-Rural Assembly, and the role of global regions implementing the New Urban Agenda post-COVID 19.
