Emergency and Resilience Practitioners in Scotland in 2024: Understanding and meeting the challenges ahead

Emergency planning, resilience, business continuity and risk reduction are the activities we plan, practice and train for in the hope they will never be needed.  They mitigate the worst when it happens and bring assurance and stability when it does not.  However, the threats presented to normal order are magnified by local, national and international events which can bring instability to our own front door.  The consequences of globally linked economies in bad times.  The potential public health effects of diseases on intimately linked societies.  Open and interwoven digital worlds across national borders.  A destabilised international order.  Increasingly turbulent effects of climate change.  The impact of economic downturn on lower public investment and safety and quality outcomes.  Then there are the kinds of accidents and disasters which can occur in good or bad times.  So how do we plan for the unexpected, ensure that we learn from every opportunity, collaborate to maximise best practice and keep our emergency planning and resilience practitioners, and our responders at every tier, well-resourced and able to prevent and react?
