Is investment in preparedness worth the effort and cost? What are the right approaches to funding and programme design to ensure sustainable solutions and community leadership in preparedness programming? How can we inform future programming to ensure we have the right people with the right skills at the right place and time to prepare for and respond to disaster in the most appropriate way?
'Preparing for Shock: Is Preparedness the New Frontier?' is a global conference aimed at providing a platform for all stakeholders working with or as part of the disasters and emergencies preparedness sector to debate key issues affecting the sector in order to inform future policy, practice, programming and funding strategies.
Join donors, NGOs and networks, government representatives, private sector, academic institutions, community representatives and practitioners to explore lessons, experience and evidence from four thematic areas and inform the way forward for preparedness.
Thematic Area 1: Return on investment in disaster preparedness.
Investment in disaster preparedness is increasingly gaining impetus but is it worth the effort and what does evidence tell us about the return on this investment?
Thematic Area 2: Communities are by nature resilient.
How do we step back from supporting external leadership to enabling community leadership and involvement in preparedness and subsequent response?
Thematic Area 3: Sustainability of preparedness investments.
How can improved engagement between humanitarian and development actors support solutions to achieve the sustainability of preparedness investments?
Thematic Area 4: Smart Thinking, Smart Programming, Smart Funding for preparedness.
Finding the right approach for 2030.
