UK Resilience: Joining up the Sectors
27 - 29 Sep 2005
About the event:
The requirement for resilience in the UK cuts across all sectors of society. Whilst the last five years have seen considerable progress in this area, both in the public and private sectors, many challenges remain for those seeking to build effective cross-sector emergency preparedness capabilities.
The conference will explore the strategic and operational resilience requirements and practices of both the UK Government and UK industry and business, in an attempt to establish where cross-sector capabilities have most effect, in order to reduce duplication of effort in major incident response. It will analyse the requirement and challenges for joined up sector working, and debate the need for integrated structures throughout all stages of emergency planning, response and recovery.
This newly established Annual HSR Conference aims to address the key issues regarding doctrine, connectivity and responsibility. A joined up approach between public and private sectors is ideal; the reality is far more challenging.
