This publication advocates a “cities-based” approach to sustainable development which recognizes the central and integrating role that cities and urban living play in developing sustainability. It highlights that, similarly to the financial crisis of 2008, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic has shown that different cities have different capacities to cope with crises. Both the pandemic and the economic crisis caused by lockdown measures have disproportionally affected different cities and population groups; the most vulnerable suffering most. The pandemic also demonstrated that cities need to develop innovative methods to confront infectious diseases without relying on drastic lockdown restrictions. Cities need to use innovative and sustainable measures, such as changing urban design and city planning, establishing green public spaces and nature-based solutions.
