The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak has been catastrophic for global economies -- shutting down the world and crippling economies in ways that will change the world forever. The pandemic highlights the need for collaborative approaches to managing global crisis and, more significantly, how we need to transition as COVID-19 has rapidly transformed the way we interact, trade, communicate, un-tap value, and create wealth. At the forefront of fighting this pandemic will be innovative tools and collective converged digital ammunition that cities and governments across the world will need to utilize not only to fight the virus but to ensure preparedness for future pandemics and health emergencies.
This webinar will explore the role of emerging technologies and data in helping to address the many challenges that have resulted from COVID-19 -- providing practical solutions for cities to help rebuild trust and enable a more secure, sustainable, and safe future for global economies. It is intended for local governments, national governments, and DRR experts from all regions.
The event will take place at 18:00 (Incheon) and 10:00 (London).
