The Political Festival of Europe is a yearly democracy festival that aims to gather citizens of Europe over the course of four days to discuss politics and embrace Europe’s rich history and cultural heritage. The Political Festival of Europe takes place in a town called Mariager – also known as the city of roses – an old, idyllic medieval town with crooked houses, cobblestoned streets and timber framed houses. With a modest population of just over 2,500 inhabitants, Mariager town will soon become the place where European democracy will come to life gathering hundreds of thousands of Europeans who want in on the future of Europe. Our mission is to be a place of: Courage – where we dare discuss the future of Europe “Peoplelization” – where we build communities as well as celebrate, showcase, and spread insights to local, regional, and national cultures Inspiration – where we establish debates, dialogues, hearings, and citizen involvement Accessibility – where we create an informal environment for citizens, politicians, and business leaders to meet Anchoring – where we anchor and raise the importance of our democracy for the future of Europe at a local level  In line with our missions, our vision is to “peoplelize” European politics and become a platform, where we strengthen democracy and unity in Europe. We aspire to become the political Olympic Games, where everyone has the possibility of participating in creating the future of Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic has given us all the more reason to create a platform, where we together can discuss European politics and its future. A platform, where people actively can get involved in developing European democracy. The inspiration behind Political Festival of Europe comes from the Nordic tradition of folkemøder –  a concept we want to take to the next level and raise from national settings to a pan-European setting in order to discuss matters that influence everyone in Europe. What is a Folkemøde?  The Danish tradition of Folkemøde [Folk – people; møde – meeting] is a public meeting that dates back to 1839. It is a political event that gathers people with different political views and positions in the interest of democracy. A Folkemøde takes form of informal discussions and speeches across opinions and hierarchy that strengthens active involvement of all participants – every one has a say, every one is heard. After the concept faded away in the 1940s, neighboring Sweden’s own form of folkemøde – Almedalsveckan introduced in 1968 – became the inspiration and groundwork for Denmark to revive the concept on the island of Bornholm in 2011 with their very own annual Folkemøde. It took on popularity fairly fast and has generated thousands of national visitors ever since. So far held at national levels, we aim to expand this concept to the whole of Europe. Here is why. What the purpose of a Folkemøde? The Danish model of Folkemøde is the cornerstone for democracy and pays tribute to the community. The foundation of a Folkemøde lies in dismantling barriers between citizens, politicians and decision-makers in order to bring politics closer to the people and to make society a better place for everybody.  The aim is to lead discussions about how to improve the future of the society and have citizens participate in shaping change. A “folkemøde” aims to: o   Inspire and challenge political views and visions o   Let people meet and listen to politicians they voted for o   Let people have a say and be heard o   Increase trust between citizens and decision-makers and hold politicians accountable o   “Peoplelize”, ;build a community where culture is showcased and celebrated o   Facilitate meaningful debates and anchor them in the political agenda  As cultural heritage is also celebrated in a Folkemøde, entertainment and good food are an integral part of such an event. Hence, at the Political Festival of Europe, you will be able to find arts and crafts, music and gastronomy, alongside the political debates, speeches, workshops, hearings etc.

The challenges posed by climate change, including extreme flooding, heat waves, droughts etc. significantly alter the types and magnitudes of hazards faced by communities and the emergency management systems at various levels of governments serving them. Accordingly, the demand from governments to address emergency preparedness and response as a core development issue, with a focus on engaging a broader number of institutions is increasing. The Global Program for Emergency Preparedness and Response (EP&R) aims to build government capacities to systematically prepare for and respond to emergencies by establishing legal and institutional frameworks for clear mandates and accountabilities, and investing in personnel, facilities, equipment, and information technology to enhance emergency management systems. The Global Program for EP&R provides technical support to task teams and governments and supports institutionalizing and scaling the World Bank’s engagement in Emergency Preparedness and Response investments by supporting task teams in advocacy, design and implementation of EP&R projects or projects with emergency preparedness components. The program offers two main products: (i) the Lessons Learned Exercise (LLE) as an entry point; and (ii) the Ready2Respond (R2R) diagnostic as an investment planning tool. In addition, the program provides support to teams by connecting regional teams with external expertise and providing operational and technical support. In the scope of the Understanding Risk Forum, the Program proposes to organize a panel discussion with the World Bank task team leaders and clients on the importance of comprehensive EP&R systems. The participants will discuss the importance of multi-agency collaboration, local-level capacity building and community engagements. The panel will discuss and share experiences from the first phase of the program including lessons learned from engagements in the Caribbean and Bangladesh; what teams learned from COVID-19; and how the program can support regional teams and clients moving forward. The panel discussion will be followed up by a Q&A.

Women and girls are disproportionately affected during disasters, and their voice is not always considered in decision-making to build resilience. While this issue is well recognized, it is not necessarily well documented with available data to design inclusive policies and projects. Information is either scattered or inexistent. Concrete and actionable information is needed to help practitioners include gender considerations in disaster risk management. Related to this is the need to cost these initiatives and include them in national budgets. Globally, there is greater recognition of the need for national budget systems to address inequalities and issues of social exclusion. For example, over 80 countries use budget systems to close equality gaps by designing and funding more sustainable and equitable public services. This type of approach to budgeting has been referred to as gender-responsive budgeting or equality budgeting. This session discussed to what extent are gender and social inclusion considerations integrated into disaster and climate change policies. It provided recommendations on how to make disaster preparedness and recovery in the Caribbean more gender responsive. The session also highlighted the opportunities to include gender and social considerations in budget policies for disaster risk management by i) understanding and addressing the unique ways in which disasters affect socially excluded groups and individuals who are disadvantaged based on their identities; ii) coordinating and engaging with relevant stakeholders, including the ministry of finance, disaster management agencies, social development agencies, line ministries, supreme audit institutions, the legislature, NGOs, and civil society organizations; and iii) empowering socially excluded groups to contribute their unique perspective to budgetary decision-making for DRM. The World Bank experts were joined by government representatives from Canada and selected Caribbean countries to share their experience with gender integration in disaster risk and budget management.

There is an emerging awareness on the intersectionality between disability and age. With age, the likelihood of a person acquiring a disability increases. Yet disability support services such as personal assistance are usually not available for persons above the age of 65. Older people with disabilities are largely excluded from the debates on deinstitutionalisation. The EU policy agenda on disability does not yet cover this important topic. We want raise awareness on the topic of intersectionality of disability and age and start promoting its inclusion in upcoming initiatives such as the European Commission guidance on Independent Living and Inclusion in the community and the framework for social services of excellence for persons with disabilities.

Speaker: Nicki Williams (Mitchell Daysh) The effects and impacts of climate change on communities and land use planning are rapidly changing. Local governments are required to consider the effects of the changing climate on communities and support communities and business to improve their resilience and sustainability. One of the keys to improving community resilience and changing land uses is enabling communities and stakeholders to make informed decisions that may change over time. Understanding how the climate will change, the risks this poses and how communities will adapt are important steps to build resilience. Dynamic planning pathways enables communities to make decisions about their future and provide for our changing climate. This session will focus on some practical examples on what is happening in local government to build community resilience through enabling communities to make informed decisions that may change over time.

One of the four key priorities in the Sendai Framework is to understand disaster risk. Risk tools, that model the impact of natural hazards, can be used to quantify risk from disaster events and inform risk management strategies. This plenary provides an overview of two risk tools that have been developed in Aotearoa-New Zealand; RiskScape and MERIT and highlight through case-study examples how they have been used to inform disaster risk management. The plenary discussion provides an opportunity to discuss the suitability of such models to inform risk and resilience decision making.

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. Speakers: Tracey Brown - Director, Sense About Science Leonard Lee - Deputy Director, Lloyd’s Register Foundation Institute for the Public Understanding of Risk Adam Parnell - Director (Maritime), Confidential Human Factors Incident Reporting Programme (CHIRP) Katherine Hill - Community Resilience Coordinator, British Red Cross

UR22 | London Satellite Hub | Session 4: "From a Ripple to a Surge"
17 Jan 2023
GFDRR
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

UR22 Technical Session | Adaptive Social Protection & Disaster Risk Management: Case Studies
18 Jan 2023
GFDRR
The negative impacts of disasters and climate change are increasingly threatening the lives and livelihoods of the world’s poor and disaster-vulnerable populations, resulting in millions either being trapped or falling back into poverty. Social protection (SP) systems have an important role in helping individuals and societies manage risk and volatility and protect them from poverty and destitution—through instruments that improve resilience, equity, and opportunity. However, traditional SP systems often cannot cover the economic and social costs brought on by compound shocks. SP programs should be responsive and adaptive to be rapidly scaled-up and be capable of increasing support to existing beneficiaries and other affected non-beneficiaries after a shock. ASP considers how SP programs, services and systems can contribute to addressing compound shocks through preventive, preparedness, and response actions, adapting, and using the capacity of the SP sector, typically developed for addressing individual shocks, to enhance the resilience of households, particularly for the poor. This session presents, through a panel discussion, various examples of how governments are implementing ASP systems to more effectively support households and individuals to adapt, prepare for, cope with, and recover from the impact of disaster-related shocks.

The elements of Public Private Partnership for disaster risk management include strategic and policy advisory, modelling, pre-disaster risk mitigation, risk transfer and post disaster risk recovery. Case studies and possible example will be shown to how risk analytics has or can be used in these areas. The second part of the session by ICNZ will focus on New Zealand, and disaster risk financing under the EQC - Private Insurer model. This case study shows how a PPP disaster risk financing model can support high uptake of insurance and reduce protection gaps for specified hazards.

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.

Over this time, we have used the past to look forward and have developed and evolved our policies and approaches to ensure New Zealander’s are supported after a natural hazard event. In July 2024, the next phase in our evolution will see the EQC Act become the Natural Hazards Insurance Act and Toka Tu Ake EQC, become Toka Tu Ake, Natural Hazards Commission. This change will not only ensure the future durability and flexibility of our legislation but allow us to continue to grow and innovate how we serve the people of Aotearoa New Zealand, to build community resilience and increase the financial resilience of the scheme. Learn and explore the evolution of the scheme, how we are striding into the future to enhance financial protection against natural hazard risks, and how our strategic objectives and innovation are supporting the reduction of risk across Aotearoa.
