- Addressing the COVID-19 pandemic and its socioeconomic repercussions

CONNECTIVITY THROUGH DIALOGUE

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all societies and economies in an unprecedented way, changing our focus and priorities and highlighting the need for enhanced cooperation. A coordinated response is necessary to address the challenges posed by the pandemic, including limiting its spread, safeguarding of public health, accelerating social and economic recovery and ensuring the security of energy and food supply.


The implementation of the Green Lanes initiative and the coordination within the framework of the EU Civil Protection mechanism, along with regional initiatives, have proven that regional cooperation is essential not only in facing the pandemic crisis, but also in tackling its crosscuting and transboundary impact.


Sharing knowledge, experience and best practices accumulated will improve crisis management and intergovernmental cooperation in the future.
