When the worst of COVID-19 is past, we will still have another global crisis on our hands - global climate change, which is projected to cause many more deaths than COVID-19. How can we go back to a ‘new normal’ that is a low carbon world?

$20-40B Stimulus spending is effectivley spending future generations tax - is a focus on shovel ready projects (by definition based on 'old assumptions') the best approach? What should we be doing instead?

Local government was already under severe financial pressure prior to COVID 19. Post COVID they will more rates defaults etc - how will they be able to spend money they don't have?

so big bailouts risk the worst of both scenarios

It takes time to include and listen to those groups we most want to include but the way government funds does not allow us the time to do this - this engagement is not seen as an important outcome of regional ED projects.

How do we change this?

Thank you Ganesh. We need to manage our revenue and balance sheets so we can contribute locally to the recovery of our communities. Austerity increases the pain now and weakens future well-beings. UK a good example of how not to do it.

Isn't there a need to rethink the delivery if local infrastructure? If we think about environmental solutions like Roger has suggested, there may be an opportunity for cheaper, more environmentally friendly community-based solutions.

Are you optimistic Ganesh that we will have learnt from this crisis and be more prepared next time? i.e. we will have an economic crisis plan, we will have the real time intel we need, we will have the architecture in place at regional and local levels to respond to the trauma and speed up recovery plans. Goodness knows we have had enough close shaves to be able to do this.

Refreshing to hear a more accurate prospective of what we are experiencing as opposed to all the hype about getting the economies operating as they have been. Sustainability and working towards how we can be sustainable - scaling down may need more attention and thought so everyone including vulnerable are considered. I am in the tourism sector and disagree with projections that the domestic market will see us through whilst we wait for the international market to vamp up. The more realistic we are the better prepared we are going to be.
