Building a resilient world after Covid 19

The Roman Stoic philosopher Seneca once wrote: “every new beginning comes from other beginnings end”. More recently, the consensus that the world we knew before the pandemic is gone seems to echo that ancient wisdom. 

But as countries around the globe are starting to lift the lockdown measures, how will this new world look like? 

We kick off this month’s issue of Infrastructure Channel with an article by Massimo Sonego, head of Corporate Finance and Investor Relations at Atlantia Group, to take a look at how the leading infrastructure group is planning to adapt to the “new normal”. 

In the second contribution, World Bank analysts Stephane Hallegatte and Stephen Hammer explain why the recovery phase can offer an opportunity to build a more resilient and sustainable future. 

In the third article Sridhar Gadhi, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Quantela, argues that in our increasingly digital world, pandemics like COVID 19 show us the urgency of integrating digital infrastructure to better respond to these challenges in the future.

Finally, we go to the analysts at the World Economic Forum to find out how airlines, travel companies, and the tourism sector plan to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
