MEDIA ADVISORY The National Academy of Public Administration To Host Panel Discussion of Intergovernmental Responses to COVID-19 Pandemic

Post Date: April 11, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Academy of Public Administration and its Center for Intergovernmental Partnership (CIP) will host an April 13th forum, Intergovernmental Dimensions of the COVID-19 Responses and Consequences, to discuss a new Academy working group report on the same issue.

As the nation enters its third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Academy this week released its new report, Intergovernmental Dimensions of the COVID-19 Responses and Consequences,” that examines the varied and sometimes conflicting governmental responses to the pandemic and outlines 37 actionable recommendations across four intergovernmental focus areas (COVID-19 testing, non-pharmaceutical interventions, COVID-19 vaccine distribution, and cross-cutting and over-arching issues) to help improve the nation’s response to the next pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic offers an unprecedented opportunity to examine federalism in action. To better understand the strengths and vulnerabilities of the intergovernmental responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, the forum’s panel of experts will delve into those issues and opportunities.

Registration for the event can be found here.
