International Disaster Response

Day 4 International Disaster Response

The UK leads the world in many aspects of disaster planning, provision of capability and resources to deal with a plethora of man made and natural disasters and that is the theme of day 4. With the policy foundation set we can look at the practical lessons dealing with real disasters and can uniquely look at the Novichok incidents in Salisbury and then as life returns to normal, the pandemic hits.  We perceive other issues with immigrants risking their lives to cross the channel, massive new facilities such as the Nightingale hospitals, being designed, built, equipped and opened in record time and underpinning all of this are two things, the first is messaging, key to crisis management.  The second is the leadership roles played by women, too often overlooked but not today.
