Some of our most critical needs are met by remote delivery of goods and services and this includes digital information. Intensified financial pressure will also shape the future, with a reassessment of information and its commercial value.  

This webinar presentation will outline the purpose of this book which is to focus on the immediate practicalities of service provision under COVID-19 and to consider longer-term planning and strategic responses to emerging challenges from around the world.
