Economic and skills recovery strategy

COVID-19 will fundamentally re-shape Derbyshire’s economy over the next decade and beyond.

The fallout from the pandemic will generate both unprecedented challenges and new opportunities for our county. The Derbyshire Economic Partnership Recovery Strategy will enable us to respond to a post-COVID world, establishing our priorities to protect and grow Derbyshire’s economy.

This strategy is underpinned by a robust evidence base which provides deep understanding of Derbyshire’s economy and labour market. Our approach has combined historical evidence to understand our county’s economic exposure to the effects of COVID-19, with live metrics to measure the impact of the pandemic on Derbyshire’s people and places.

The evidence points to a compelling need for county-wide recovery coordination – detailing the challenges and opportunities brought to the fore by the pandemic.
