Disasters and emergencies are a fact of life. Climate change raises oceans and displaces millions; wildfires burn huge tracts of land; global travel can spread pandemics overnight. And while modern technology can help mitigate emergencies, our reliance on that technology can also make society more vulnerable.

In this workshop, we’ll dive into the challenges governments face, and the changing landscape of solutions that increase citizen resiliency. Bringing together noted experts in robust technology, disaster management, emergency relief, and the delivery of complex systems, we’ll tackle a vital—but often overlooked—aspect of service delivery: Dealing with disasters.
