Prevention is better than cure
Taking climate change and drought as an example, this causes problems when it comes to food supply. In Argentina, a lot of cattle died because drought and harvest were ruined for one of the largest food producers in the world. Fortunately, humanity was not affected there but in other parts of the world this directly impacts people's lives. So, technology needs to be part of the solutions for prevention of disasters. In Turkey and Syria for example, new construction is taking place to avoid future disasters. In the Netherlands, being at sea level, we had a major, unexpected flood in the 50s which claimed thousands of lives. Now protection from the sea has become a priority and created a lot of technological, preventative solutions. Even developing regions are availing of such solutions, such as New York which saw extensive flooding in recent times, so being prepared is key.
Being agile, prepared and decisive as a leader is integral to success, in times of all types of crises. Our organization is built on and driven by global collaboration, giving us a full and comprehensive view of world markets and events, and the leaders with the right experience to take organizations through their darkest times.
