Ethical and Legal Considerations for a City Response

Executives and representatives from 26 cities worldwide joined a virtual convening to discuss a human rights approach to enacting and enforcing public health and safety measures (PHSMs). The session also provided a venue for an exchange of COVID-19 experiences and strategies. Mayors Josefina Belmonte of Quezon City, Philippines and Soham El Wardini of Dakar, Senegal shared updates from their cities and the need for an evolving legal response throughout the pandemic.
