High-level think tank: Roundtable to resilience

Healthy Land & Water is energised by the support of a broad cross-section of businesses and experts from SEQ for being part of a solution to flip the current reactionary funding model to a proactive one aimed at building resilience to natural disasters and climate change.

Over 50 C-suite executives and influencers joined the influencers ‘Roundtable to resilience’ think tank hosted by Stephen Robertson and Julie McLellan. There was strong interest in turning around the current system which continues to rely on disaster payments and continually cleaning up the mess after the fact.

There was strong appetite for developing a proactive approach – one which enables more SEQ groups and businesses to be involved so they can all take part in driving a more sustainable, resilient future.

Amongst the attendees were representatives from the insurance, banking, building and construction industry, charity and philanthropy, weather and climate experts, mining, supermarket supply chain, engineering, big data, research and the arts sectors, among others.

It was broadly agreed that resilience failures are likely to impact significantly upon business viability in the near future without significant reform.

Part of the problem is an assumption that everyone inherently knows what to do.

There was a strong call for Healthy Land & Water to step up and provide a suite of solutions that people and organisations can see and be part of.

There was also a call for the development of an action plan, and Healthy Land & Water was charged with kick-starting this work.
