    Abstract This policy brief provides advice for local policymakers and financial administrators to manage the short- and medium-term impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on city finances by improving fiscal policy effectiveness and building robust financial management systems. Recommendations: (i) conduct fiscal optimisation and crisis budgeting to improve own source revenue; (ii) adapt budgeting formats and link urban planning with investments to facilitate long-term financial planning; (iii) undertake comprehensive finance reviews to inform policy and increase budget transparency and accountability; (iv) introduce e-government tools in city financial management and participatory budgeting; and (v) leverage public–private and civil society partnerships for public service provision.
