The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting regions and cities specializing in mining and extractive activities in different ways. The mining sector, which is highly dependent on commodity markets, is particularly vulnerable to the effects of external shocks, in terms of jobs, income levels and living standards.
The virtual discussion examined the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on mining regions and cities, policy responses and opportunities that have emerged in the short and long term. This virtual discussion provided a platform for the exchange of experiences and best practices of OECD and MIREU mining regions and cities in the context of the COVID-19 crisis. In addition, the results of the surveys conducted by the representatives of the mining regions were presented.
