Small Grant Scheme on Pandemics, Cities, Regions & Industry: Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the Implementation of Digital Public Policy in Six Local Administrations in the Colombian Meta Department
This exploratory research project seeks to furnish academics in regional studies and broader audiences with crucial insights into the Covid-19 pandemic and how this has impacted the organisational processes of the public administrative apparatus on a municipal level in Colombia. As a result, public administration institutions have strengthened their virtual communication channels with citizens using different platforms to advance their activities and, in parallel, also advance the modernisation of internal processes and activities with other public and private entities.
“I am incredibly grateful to the Regional Studies Association community for allowing me to strengthen international cooperation with colleagues from Colombia and Spain and showcase a Colombian case study.”
