Reimagining resilience in a post pandemic world

Source(s):  Münchener Rückversicherungs-Gesellschaft (Munich Re)

This white paper explores how our society might become more resilient to a similar disastrous situation with respect to climate change risk. The paper highlights the importance for society to embrace ‘gray rhinos’ events; highly probable, highly impactful, and often neglected events.

Climate change, underlines this paper, calls for better-coordinated action and information sharing than was seen in the pandemic response. It’s widely understood, for example, that vaccine development for the coronavirus disease 2019 will progress slowly without an exchange of scientific information among virologists, scientists, and labs. Likewise, the lessons from countries, states, and cities which have made the greatest leaps towards disaster prevention will help other places become more resilient.
