The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting local service provision throughout the world. The Live Learning Session on local finance highlighted how essential it is for local and regional governments to have access to finance and to bring all stakeholders together in order to protect global resources and promote the universal development agendas now in the midst of the crisis, and during the aftermath.
The Live Learning Session that took place on April 23, 2020 organized in collaboration Global Fund for Cities Development (FMDV) and UNCDF, provided an opportunity to foster exchanges among local and regional governments and key partners such as the French Development Agency (AFD), the Rockefeller Foundation and the European Commission, on the steps necessary to guarantee access to finance for local and regional governments in the face of the crisis and to address the recovery.
