World View. Webinar: What should COVID-19 recovery look like?


Webinar: What should COVID-19 recovery look like?

The Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research and the Disaster Prevention and Management Journal are pleased to invite you to an online talk with Jemilah Mahmood, Special Advisor to the Prime Minister of Malaysia on Public Health and Ricardo Mena, Director of the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR).

Disaster recovery is the least spoken aspect in disaster risk management. The COVID-19 pandemic is far from over and during the ongoing pandemic we see many countries being affected by range of other disasters. During this time, we have seen a proliferation of actors working with different aspects of the pandemic. Governments, non-governmental actors and civil society are all working towards building a resilient society. Therefore, we must channel our efforts and ensure that recovery is sustainable and address issues of systemic risk.

The webinar will focus on the following questions

  • How do we ensure that recovery addresses questions of risk and vulnerability from a systems perspective?
  • How can we better align efforts of different actors working with different aspects of the pandemic and other disasters?
  • What factors are crucial to ensure a sustainable recovery from the pandemic?

The speakers will talk for approximately 15 minutes each, followed by a 20 minutes Q&A.
