Unprecedented circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic have presented huge challenges to a third of the global urban population living in slums around the world. The e-learning course “Urban Upgrading for Inclusion, Sustainability and Resilience in a time of Global Pandemics” aims at supporting policy makers and urban practitioners to better respond to the challenge of slums, especially in a time of global pandemics.
