This side event organized by the Local Authorities Major Group gathered within the Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Governments will mainly be focusing on how to support systems of service provision to ensure their sustainability in the aftermath of the COVID-19 Pandemic as well as focusing on how to protect the most vulnerables.
