In April 2022, The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change outlined in stark terms the dire consequences of our current climate reality, which will see a greater frequency of extreme weather and ‘one-a-century’ sea level events becoming annual by 2050. The impact of the climate crisis has already caused a significant increase in extreme weather events in recent years, bringing substantial challenges for national and local services across the country. This year alone saw multiple extreme weather events, including several named winter storms, record-high temperatures, flooding and droughts. These events have highlighted the critical role that effective resilience structures, partnership relationships and the coordination between agencies play in preparing for increasingly dangerous and life-threatening weather events.
To address this growing challenge, in March 2021 the Government published the Integrated Review, signalling its commitment to improving our ability to anticipate, prepare to, respond to and recover from risks, including extreme weather. To deliver on this the Government published its long-awaited National Resilience Strategy in December, setting out the national vision for improving the UK’s resilience and preparedness.
This timely Policy Foresight online live conference offers a valuable opportunity for key partners from local authorities, emergency planning/civil contingencies, the police, health, fire and rescue services, private and third sectors and other key statutory agencies to examine how a 'whole-of-society' approach will be central to delivering effective multi-agency resilience structures that are fit-for-purpose. The webinar will explore the potential impact that the newly published UK Government Resilience Framework will have on extreme weather preparedness nationally. This online conference provides an ideal platform to learn from innovative best practice and share ideas with fellow participants on how to identify gaps in existing measures, improve communication and information sharing and work to deliver more effective responses to the increasingly dangerous weather events that we will face.
