Expert’s Insight Video Series (“Metro Regions of the Future”): Interview with Joanna Masic

In planning their recovery from COVID-19, cities can aim to build back better. In this interview, Joanna Masic, Lead Urban Specialist at the World Bank, explains that while many city leaders have had to prioritize creating jobs and livelihood opportunities, they can also invest in measures that improve the livability and resilience of cities, such as transitioning to a zero-carbon society and building resilient infrastructure. She also discusses how urban practitioners should focus on energy-efficiency, livability, and productivity, so that cities are more resilient against climate change and future shocks.
