The resilience approach to building smarter, safer, and sustainable cities

Leadership interview | Conference Room A | Theme: Risk management and resilience

As urban areas continue to attract talent from around the world, population spur is becoming a major concern for governments and law enforcement agencies. Enhancing public safety and security will require a holistic approach from all entities, including police forces, to mitigate risk, prevent crime and co-create resilient neighbourhoods. How are leading urban economies adopting novel approaches to build safer societies? What does the future of law enforcement look like in a smart economy and how can agencies remain technically equipped in the quest to mitigate crime?

Attendee Insights:

A must-attend session for governments and law enforcement agencies to understand the significance of embracing resilience, emergency preparedness, and technology as core pillars of public safety and security.

Strategy talks and discussion

Conference Room A | Theme: Risk management and resilience

Risk management is a critical enabler of isolating and allocating resources to meet organisational priorities. Failing to forecast risk and act upon the urgencies of public safety and security has often resulted in civic disorder, societal unrest. How are governments and law enforcement agencies assessing risk avenues, strategising protocols and prioritising resources to maintain law and order and mitigate evolving crime forms such as terrorism, cybercrime? What immediate steps must be taken by police forces to remain prepared for emergencies and maintain public safety?

Attendee Insights:

Focussed presentations highlighting risk management strategies for law enforcement agencies to prevent cross-border crime and bolster public security followed by Q&A.


10:15 – 10:20 | Opening remarks by session chair


10:20 - 10:35 | Strategy talk 1

Strengthening risk assessment for emergency preparedness and public safety


10:35 - 10:50 | Strategy talk 2

How close are we to Vision Zero? Achieving zero road fatalities across global transportation systems

Keynote | Conference Room A | Theme: Mobility safety

Introduced in Sweden in 1994, the Vision Zero approach to road safety underlines that road accidents must be reduced to zero rather than bringing them down to a controllable level. Governments, transport authorities, traffic safety agencies, and individuals have equal responsibilities to create public awareness and enhance road safety. How can future transportation systems be designed to reduce traffic accidents to zero? With the widespread adoption of technology, how are transport authorities and traffic safety agencies making use of the multitude of data points and analytics to catalyse the transition to zero fatalities?

Attendee Insights:

An important session to learn how Sweden’s Vision Zero action plan has helped reduce traffic accidents and how it can foster the creation of safer transportation systems for everyone.
