In post-Covid-19 times, there are a range of policy actions which can be implemented to mitigate the economic and social impact effects of the virus. Co-Design, co-operative and integrative measures can be seen as a combination of policy responses to tackle specific circumstances.

Together they form an array of site- and sector-specific instruments which can underpin inclusive growth, enabling individuals and communities to prosper. The measures are part of a systems approach to sustainable economic development. They will help underpin strategy for policymakers to focus on their objectives.
