In February 2021, the RSE submitted a response to the House of Lords Risk Assessment and Risk Planning Committee inquiry on risk assessment and planning in the context of disruptive national hazards following the Covid-19 pandemic. This response was facilitated through the Building National Resilience working group of the RSE Post-Covid Futures Commission. This work is:
- exploring what a resilient nation looks like
- considering how government, industry, and society learns from the pandemic
- the future risks and challenges
- and priority actions to build resilience
The advice paper provides an update of the group’s work to date; presenting an overview of the attributes of resilience, the potential challenges, and suggested priority actions.
