Disaster and resilience 2021

June 14, 2021, 8:00 - June 18, 2021, 14:00 EDT

The Disaster and Resilience 2021 International Summit was an event that took place virtually from June 14 to 18, 2021. It was a meeting point for a diversity of actors (managers and policy makers, practitioners and humanitarians, experts and academics, artists and creators, local and indigenous populations). Focusing on the needs of individuals, families, businesses and communities, participants discussed the perspectives of resilience in an inclusive, multi-hazard, multi-disciplinary approach in the context of before, during and after disasters. 

In the current context of pandemics, but also of an increase in the number of disasters and their consequences, it is important to question the measures that promote the resilience of individuals, organizations, communities and their systems. Faced with these multiple facets of resilience, the summit aimed to develop a multisectoral approach to understanding resilience, mobilizing all stakeholders to take action in building resilience. It also provided an opportunity to learn how an individual, organization or community can achieve resilience. 

This event provided an opportunity for all actors involved and concerned with disaster resilience to come together and collaborate in a variety of activities aimed at participant interaction. Beyond the presentation of the work and initiatives of actors (academics, professionals, etc.) which are usually at the heart of knowledge transfer, this summit tends to discussion, exchange and innovation. Faced with major challenges such as disaster risk reduction, adaptation to climate change and sustainable development, how can we co-construct an inclusive resilience that protects us from tomorrow's hazards?
