SP 9.1 Resilient risk governance systems: enhancing integration and adaptive capacity across scales

Thursday 12 May, 11.00 – 12.45, Penn Room I

Resilience programmes aimed at strengthening risk governance are faced with several challenges: understanding the components of the system, the vertical and horizontal interactions, and how these shape resilience and efforts to build adaptive capacity. Thus research can only be undertaken in the context of practice and vice-versa. The praxis of theorising, acting and reflecting on interactions with and within risk governance systems will be discussed in this session. Participants will consider findings from programmes that have worked at the interface of governance and resilience, and discuss how resilient risk governance systems can be promoted through actions targeted at different scales.
