The LSDC is working to deliver a sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic in London. London is characterised by the unique breadth and depth of its intellectual, creative, financial and cultural capital. Helping London to harness these attributes will not only serve the capital but also benefit the rest of the UK, aiding the recovery everywhere and enhancing our country’s future international competitiveness.
Resilience to future crises will be paramount as the climate and ecological crises continue to deepen, posing an even greater threat to lives and our way of life. Similarly the existing inequalities of poverty and disadvantage are likely to have deepened as a result of the pandemic. London and the UK's recovery must therefore be a sustainable and productive one, if it is to be successful at all
Our work, highlighted below, will focus on how London can achieve a successful recovery.
