Webinar: Strengthening Diaspora business risk management and resilience during disasters

Date: 27 July 2016 14:00 - 15:00

Venue: Webinar

Our recent AFFORD Business Centre study highlights that only half of diaspora and UK-based investors had any risk assessment and mitigation plans in place prior to the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone. The report states that risk planning and management “improves business resilience and chances of weathering the worst consequences during a major crisis, thereby improving the prospects for business continuity.” Additionally, “It also improves the chances of finding emerging opportunities, which can then be capitalised on and translated into success in the face of disasters.”
