Positive conversation

For more than a year, different members of ORU Fogar have been talking about the governance of the future. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that regional governments are key to facing the complexity of the globalized world.

As a result of the state of global alarm, Abdessamad Sekkal, as president of ORU Fogar, called on the regional world and especially the members of ORU Fogar to have a great debate on the role of the regions in future governance. The COVID-19 pandemic, as a public health problem, gave a renewed role to the public administration. In all geographies, the central state took control in the face of a situation as serious as the alert. In some cases, this control was done with exquisite coordination with local and regional governments. In others, however, the pandemic facilitated a recentralization that was already latent. Everywhere, the regions played a key role in at least two ways: in disseminating recommendations to combat the epidemic and in serving the most vulnerable population.
