UK Resilience: Delivering Resilience is the title of a RUSI conference at the institute’s Whitehall home on September 19 and 20.

Organisers say that ‘Delivering Resilience’ will provide the opportunity to survey the diversity of the resilience landscape, while examining the mechanisms and organisations that contribute to delivering such capabilities, and exploring future directions that such planning and preparation could, and should, take.

This fourth RUSI annual resilience conference will reflect the need for a holistic, consistent and enduring approach, which incorporates the public, private and voluntary sectors.
