A new report on steps needed to achieve whole of society resilience has been produced by Resilience First in collaboration with PA Consulting. The report is a result of a discussion forum held by Resilience First with PA Consulting at the end of 2022 which brought together resilience experts from across government, communities, academia, and business.
The report is based on five key themes:
- Establishing wider partnerships
- Providing incentives
- Involving communities
- Building future skills
- Leveraging data and technology.
For each of the key themes, the report sets out recommendations and provides specific actions for how a whole of society approach to resilience in the UK can be implemented. Taking these steps will deliver a collective, co-ordinated approach beyond traditional emergency preparedness and response that moves towards holistic resilience for both society and organizations, says Resilience First.
