Covid-19 is undoubtedly a regional crisis, spatially uneven in its impacts. While it is too soon to talk about a transition ‘from pandemic to recovery’, with attention switching to regional development priorities and the implications of Covid-19 on regional policy, planning and development, increasingly we will need to focus on regions in their recovery phase. In this article we ask four leading researchers what this recovery phase will mean for regions. Opening the way for future discussion perspectives on regional economic recovery, resilience planning, building healthy and just places, and overcoming the ‘shadow’ pandemic indicate how this recovery phase is unfolding and what we would benefit from doing differently to ‘build back better’ and overcome ‘wicked problems’ preventing more inclusive, just and sustainable regional futures.
