Fostering inclusive growth to ‘level up’ the UK: Lessons from the Basque Country
27 Jan 2023
ForeignPolicyCentre
Fostering inclusive growth in order to ‘level up’ prosperity across the UK and reduce regional inequality has become an important policy agenda for the UK Government. There remain many questions, however, regarding how exactly this can be achieved. This Aston Centre for Europe and Foreign Policy Centre event seeks to extract lessons from the Basque Country, a region in northern Spain renowned for its inclusive economic transformation, and to share best practice. As a once heavily industrialised region that was ravaged by the economic crisis of the 1970s, the Basque Country developed a new economic model based on competitiveness and solidarity over subsequent decades, thanks to which it features among the leading regions in Europe in terms of GDP per capita and has among the lowest rates of poverty and social exclusion. Moreover, since the turn of the century, a variety of stakeholders – both public and private – have worked in an ever more dynamic fashion comprising top-down, bottom-up and horizontal processes to continually update and revisit the region’s strategy for inclusive economic development. What factors have been key to the success of the Basque Country’s territorial strategy? How exactly has the region’s dynamic approach to strategy design and implementation worked? What opportunities has it posed? And how – or to what extent – have any challenges and difficulties been overcome? Understanding these dimensions in a well-developed regional success story such as the Basque Country has the potential to offer important lessons for the range of regional and local stakeholders in the UK who are being invited to play an active role in designing and implementing a ‘levelling up’ strategy. This event will also offer the opportunity to consider what scope there is to deepen collaboration between prosperous regions in Europe such as the Basque Country and regions of the UK to address today’s economic challenges. Speakers: Dr Edurne Magro, Senior Researcher at Orkestra-Basque Institute of Competitiveness Bill Murray OBE, Adviser, Global Counsel; Former Head of Economics and Public Policy at the British Embassy in Spain Dr Igor Calzada, Senior Researcher, Wales Institute of Social and Economic Research, Data and Methods (WISERD), Cardiff University; Urban Transformations ESRC & Future of Cities Programme, University of Oxford; UN-Habitat – Digital Transformation in Urban Areas Henriette Lyttle-Breukelaar, Director of Economic Strategy, Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership Chair: Dr Caroline Gray, Lecturer in Politics and International Relations, College of Business and Social Sciences at Aston University

A ‘Force for Good’?: Examining UK engagement in Fragile and Conflict Affected Countries
25 Jan 2023
ForeignPolicyCentre
This virtual event will discuss the findings of an upcoming Foreign Policy Centre (FPC) and the Peaceful Change Initiative (PCi) publication. The event and publication seek to re-examine the UK’s presence in fragile and conflict affected countries (FCACs) around the world at a time of continuing global geopolitical competition and added fragilities generated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of climate change.The publication will address the questions of ‘why’ and ‘how’ the UK is engaged in FCACs in light of the UK Government’s recent Integrated Review, cuts to foreign aid and the emergence of new policy tools such as the UK’s independent trade policy. It will centre on the UK’s commitment to be a ‘Force for Good’ in the world and examine how this approach works alongside the Government’s other economic and strategic priorities. The event will build on this and highlight the importance of an integrated, conflict sensitive approach to FCACs, which recognises the importance of promoting sustainable peace pursuing long-term stability rather than a short-termist understanding of the UK’s national interests.The publication will be edited by Adam Hug (Director of the FPC) and Tim Molesworth (Senior Adviser, Conflict Sensitivity and Peace Technology at PCi). Essay contributors confirmed so far include: Rt Hon. Andrew Mitchell MP (former International Development Secretary); Jonathan Cohen (Executive Director of Conciliation Resources); Dr Naho Mirumachi (Reader in Environmental Politics at Kings College London); Phil Bloomer (Executive Director at Business and Human Rights Resource Centre); Helen Kezie-Nwoha (Executive Director, Women’s International Peace Centre (WIPC)); Phil Vernon (Consultant and former Director of Programmes at International Alert); Richard Reeve (Coordinator of the Rethinking Security network); and Fred Carver (Consultant).

Species-rich grasslands are particularly valuable for wildlife and support a variety of rare species of plants and insects. Despite their value, we have lost approximately 97% of these grasslands. With grazing management key to creating and maintaining species-rich grasslands, landowners are core to regenerating this vital habitat. Innovative, more sustainable, grazing management practices can promote the botanical diversity of grass swards and reduce input costs.

17 Jan 2023
GFDRR
The UR22 London Satellite Hub took place on November 29, 2022 at the Design Museum. Opening Keynote: Reflecting on over three decades of personal experience in international humanitarian work, Richard Blewitt, Executive Director of International at the British Red Cross, opened the UR22 London Satellite Hub by providing a humanitarian perspective on the challenges of managing compound risks around the world – illustrated by recent examples of how these risks manifest in humanitarian needs in places such as Somaliland and the Sahel, where people are facing a perfect storm of compounding risks including conflict, drought, flooding, food insecurity and Covid-19. Session 1: "Risk Know-How in Communities Around the World" Every day, thousands of people all over the world are helping their communities to make sense of risk. These community risk practitioners have often been innovating in how to convey risk messages or question information. They are uniquely placed to know what their community knows and needs, but their expertise is often missing from global conversations about risk. Despite the different cultures and varied environments they each work in, they also often have similar needs. Diverse risk practitioners are making many of the same discoveries about what they and their communities need to decide the weight to give to information about risks.

17 Jan 2023
GFDRR
Aerial acrobats, professional jugglers, and other circus artists are remarkably talented at understanding, anticipating, and managing risk. Circus artists straddle fine lines in mitigating without eliminating risk and using the risk itself as a medium for community engagement and inspiration. Can we, as risk practitioners, learn from their talent and creativity? This unconventional session will combine a taste of circus arts performance with (safe, and sensorially, cognitively, and emotionally stimulating) audience engagement and expert discussion to challenge how attendees perceive, understand, and address risk. Through a combination of formal presentations, designed interaction and serious fun, we will dive into the complex interactions between thrill, narrative, and analytical rigour. Importantly, we will co-create tangible and actionable ideas to support the Understanding Risk community through creative communication approaches that can be tailored to your specific needs and opportunities.

17 Jan 2023
GFDRR
The use of personal data and AI technologies offers great potential across many areas of society to improve productivity, standards of living, decision-making and risk management. However, the use of such data and technologies also presents new risks and pitfalls of its own, such as the amplification of existing human biases in decision-making. As part of the Lloyd’s Register Foundation World Risk Poll, global attitudes to risk and harm from the use of AI and personal data have been explored on an unprecedented scale: 125,000 interviews with people across 12 countries conducted by Gallup in 2021. To mark the launch of a new report on the findings, this session discussed what must be done to manage this new area of risk, while still maximizing the potential of data and AI to help manage old ones.

Framed by insights from the Lloyd’s Register Foundation World Risk Poll and the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre as part of the Anticipation Hub, this session will explore how multiple risks can compound each other to cause greater harm, particularly to vulnerable populations that may suffer from discrimination and financial insecurity. When two or more risks collide or occur rapidly one after another, the collective impact is often greater than the sum of its parts. When climate change and climate related disasters interact with trends such as skewed development, conflict and violence, poor natural resource management, rapid rates of urbanisation, and gaping inequity, impacts are worse – particularly for the poorest and most vulnerable. For example, some communities in East Africa have faced flooding, locusts, increased food insecurity, and armed conflict – in addition to the immediate health threats and socio-economic impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. Many European countries recently faced the worst heatwave in history, while dealing with fuel and energy shortages, rising inflation, continued migration, and security issues. It’s critical to understand the factors that contribute to compound risk and how they relate and impact each other. Panellists will discuss how we can use these insights to build equitable models of resilience that do not leave anyone behind. Speakers: Catalina Jaime - Lead of Climate and Conflict & PhD researcher, Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre & University of Twente, ITC Ksenia Chmutina - Reader in Sustainable and Resilient Urbanism, School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering, Loughborough University Nicola Ranger - Head of Sustainable Finance Research for Development & Senior Researcher, Oxford Sustainable Finance Group & Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment Simphiwe Stewart - Technical Advisor on Climate and Conflict, Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre

The event took place on the 19th October 2022 at the Press Club Brussels Europe. About the event: The arrival of a new British Prime Minister raises once again the question of whether a settlement over the Northern Ireland Protocol is possible. As both the key to concluding the 2020 Withdrawal Agreement and the cause of much of the subsequent tension between the UK and the EU, the Protocol sits in an uneasy position, especially for the people of Northern Ireland itself. This event brings together insights from Ireland, the UK and the EU to consider whether the lived experience of the Protocol matches the rhetoric, the options open to the various parties involved and the question of whether the securing of a mutually-acceptable outcome might start to rebuild the UK’s relations with Ireland, the EU and beyond. Chaired by Dr Giada Lagana (Cardiff University) Speakers: Dr Mary C. Murphy (University College Cork) Shona Murray (Reporter with Euronews) Prof Simon Usherwood (Open University) The event is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

Wikipedia is the first source that many use to find out more about someone, but there's a huge problem - many notable women in science are simply not there. In fact, only about 19% of Wikipedia biographies are of women. Dr Jess Wade is on a mission to change this. In her day job, she's an Imperial College Research Fellow investigating new materials for electronic devices that will make them more efficient and sustainable. She's also a champion for diversity in science. In the last four years, she's written 1,800 wikipedia biographies for women and people from other underrepresented groups to tell the stories of their contributions to science. These include extraordinary women in science such as Dr Gladys West, a mathematician who was instrumental to the creation of GPS, and Dr Hannah Ritchie, Head of Research at Our World in Data.

The International Initiative "4 per 1000", launched by France on December 1st, 2015, at the COP 21, consists of federating all voluntary stakeholders of the public and private sectors (national governments, local and regional governments, companies, trade organizations, NGOs, research facilities, etc.) under the framework of the Lima-Paris Action Plan (LPAP). The Initiative aims to demonstrate that agriculture, particularly agricultural soils, can play a crucial role in food security and climate change. Supported by solid scientific documentation, this initiative invites all partners to state or implement some practical actions on soil carbon storage and the type of practices to achieve this (e.g., agroecology, agroforestry, conservation agriculture, landscape management, etc.). The initiative aims to encourage stakeholders to transition towards a productive, highly resilient agriculture based on the appropriate management of lands and soils, creating jobs and incomes, and ensuring sustainable development.
