10:00 am - 1:00 pm Disaster Management Authority: Improving risk management frameworks on a company, country, and regional level

Once a crisis occurs, the assessment of damage, effectively handling the event and communicating its status will determine the ability of the agency involved to overcome the damage. To best enhance response capabilities, collaboration between government, military and civil stakeholders needs to be a priority to establish the regulators and enforcers of risk relief. It is imperative to have a unified system to manage risks on a multilateral level for the successful management of natural crisis and disasters. The workshop will focus on building an unified disaster framework to improve the coordination between major organisations and implement a unified plan and control centre to deal with crises within the region.

In this session you will learn:

  • Best tools to establish an open data policy that disseminates information not only amongst internal departments but also across multiple organisations to better inform the community of developing events
  • Develop a multi-step process for effective handling of an event as well as coordinated capacity building: immediately after, during and post-crisis
  • How best to assign specific roles for all organisations involved based on historical crisis handling and future capabilities
  • Case studies on how technical failures have better enabled current disaster management authorities to standardise and autonomise various units to support and quickly coordinate at the time of crisis
  • The most effective means of embedding unified resilience and response codes within your organisation that adhere to the newly established disaster management system
The published programme is correct at time of printing. However, given the seniority of our speakers and the nature of their roles, speakers may subsequently substitute or remove themselves from the programme. This is always regrettable, and we will always try to replace the speaker with a speaker with equivalent insight.
