In this, the second in our three-part series of webinars we examine what is ‘meaningful recovery’ from Covid?

A panel of subject matter experts from The International Emergency Managers Society (TIEMS), the UK Emergency Planning Society (EPS) and the Resilient Cities Network (RCN) will provide insights from around the globe as we examine three key questions identified during Covid and the development of the International Standard for Recovery and Renewal (ISO22393);

  • How effective were national and local systems for managing recovery from Covid-19?
  • How effective was the provision of strategic advice on recovery from Covid-19?
  • What is your 'stand-out' lesson from your experiences of managing Covid-19 recovery?

Each member of the panel will share their own perspectives on these questions, before a facilitated discussion and interactive Q&A with the audience, who will also be invited to offer observations from their own experiences and learning.

The session will be hosted by TIEMS in collaboration with the University of Manchester (UoM), EPS and RCN, with discussions being facilitated by Professor Duncan Shaw, Professor of Operational Research and Critical Systems at Alliance Manchester Business School, and David Powell, Principal Advisor in Recovery, Renewal, Resilience, Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI).
