Post-Pandemic Global Systems: For faster recovery and improved preparedness
World history has been marked by pandemics. In the last century following World War I, the influenza wave of 1918–19 killed between 15 and 20 million people, and in 1919 more than 1.6 million cases of typhus were reported in the USSR. COVID-19 has already caused about 550 thousand deaths and the economic shock will shrink the global economy by more than 5 percent. It will unfortunately not be the last pandemic in our interconnected world and the next one could be considerably more dangerous.

Yet global systems do not provide adequate preparedness. International cooperation fell short during COVID-19; leadership of the WHO has been challenged; global trade flows for supply chains were disrupted causing scarcity of essential medical supplies and equipment.

How can new systems emerge for recovery and better preparedness? In this session, a panel of lead thinkers will deliberate on how systems may evolve to catalyze economic recovery and to ensure better preparedness for the next pandemic. Focus will be on the need for change and opportunities in business, government, and international cooperation.
