Risk KAN Webinar: Systemic Risk and Covid-19 - Advancing anticipatory action
The Covid-19 pandemic has created complexities for early warning, action and assessment of cascading risk. In this webinar, we will hear from a range of academics and practitioners working on Covid-19 and cascading risk and learn about what this means in practice for advancing anticipatory action.
This webinar is co-hosted by Risk KAN and the Anticipation Hub. This is the second in a monthly series of Risk KAN webinars on systemic risk.
- Marleen de Ruiter (Institute for Environmental Studies,Vrije Universiteit) and Faith Taylor (King's College London)
- Stefanie Lux (German Red Cross/ Anticipation Hub)
- Dr Mark Quigley, Associate Professor (University of Melbourne)
- Dr. Evan Easton-Calabria, Senior Research Officer (University of Oxford)
- Mr. Sheikh Khairul, Forecast-based Financing Delegate in Bangladesh (German Red Cross)
The speakers will share their research on a multi-hazards perspective on the Covid-19 pandemic and lessons from anticipatory humanitarian action for climate disasters during Covid-19, in particular reflecting on the lessons from Bangladesh. A discussion will then follow where speakers and participants discuss how to advance anticipatory action in practice amidst systemic risks and Covd-19.
