This report addresses the question, what the Covid-19 pandemic taught us about future opportunities for change and is part of a series of related reports and podcasts. Resilience is the ability to withstand, adapt to changing conditions, and recover positively from shocks and stresses. We need to understand how crisis can reveal both the weaknesses and strengths of the systems on which we rely, and to sharing stories and insights across a variety of sectors towards building long- term resilience.
The report investigates the experience of recent crises, bringing together diverse experiences and perspectives across stakeholders to bear witness to the impacts of deeply disruptive events, and the individuals, decisions, technologies and processes that shaped the response and recovery. These investigations not only strengthen our broad understanding of resilience in practice, but also help us to shape and influence future work. They also actively explore different and innovative approaches to capturing and sharing learning.
