For the 1st edition (May 14, 2020), we focus on changing vulnerability, and the connection to recovery. Covid-19 related health risks are front of mind today, yet mental health are already emerging as a critical consideration across frontline workers, volunteers, and people emerging from lockdown. Cyber risks have been heightened as cities and businesses rely more heavily on web-based interfaces, and natural hazard preparation and response may also need to evolve. Planning for recovery should consider how to engage communities and businesses and their perceptions of opportunities and risks, to enable cities to prioritise investment, and embed resilience.
