The COVID-19 crisis is having a deep impact on local governance around the world. The outbreak has a profound effect on local public health, an unprecedented impact on local economies around the world and it magnifies existing social issues, including inequality. In some contexts, the crisis undermines local public order, where specifically developing and fragile countries may see the crisis disrupt local democratic processes. VNG International and local partners are quickly adapting to the new COVID-19 context, thereby trying to contribute to solutions for the problems mentioned before and, ultimately, at building back better.
