Description

The ResilienceDirect™ and Natural Hazards Partnership Conference, OneResilience 2016.

Wednesday 7 September, Hilton Deansgate Manchester

Innovation, technology and collaboration

This year’s conference will be taking place on Wednesday 7 September, at the Hilton Deansgate, in Manchester. The conference will be a joint event between ResilienceDirect and the Natural Hazards Partnership.

We as the Resilience Community have been facing many extremely challenging events and have responded to major incidents, such as the Winter Flooding of 2015–16. Once again, it has highlighted that you are there to keep the UK safe.

This also focuses on the need for us to be truly innovative in the way we come together to plan, respond and recover from major incidents and emergencies.
