Consolidate successful initiatives that serve vulnerable groups and assess remaining unmet needs

It is important to continue focusing on the most vulnerable groups, even when the initial blows from the pandemic have passed. Given the fast pace of response during the early weeks or months, it is important to assess which initiatives have worked and those that have not had the desired impact. You may also want to assess unmet needs or new ones that may have emerged as the crisis unfolded.

ASSESSMENT

Some questions to guide your thinking

  • Which initiatives have worked and why?
  • How can city leaders help to consolidate them?
  • Which initiatives have not worked and why?
  • Should city leaders discard them or can they introduce changes to make them work?
  • Which needs remain unmet or have emerged and are not tackled by existing initiatives?
