Chaos, unpredictability and uncontrollable. Written by one of Inverroy’s associate consultants this blog focuses on the importance of Crisis Communications and what it can be like in a real life situation.
Energy transition poses momentous challenges to all countries, especially when we add COVID to the equation; but add in the effects of terrorism, multi-national influences and water shortages and the challenge in Africa is bigger still. Toby Ingram investigates and considers some Resilience and Business Continuity issues along the way.
The rising threat of social/civil unrest and what it means for businesses. How vulnerable are you? Are you prepared? Do you have a plan? Stu’s blog follows the effect of multiple issues affecting the globe today along with advice for current business owners.
The relationship between COVID-19 and increased terrorist attacks is an additional worrying side effect of the pandemic for the African continent. So why is it happening and how can we respond effectively?
There is currently not enough water in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and this is only going to get worse. Morocco are leading the way in the MENA with strategic foresight and many local water management programmes, both of which could be exported to regional partners. Toby Ingram’s blog studies some of the historic reasons for the water shortage, and looks ahead to both some of the regional challenges and solutions for the future.
For many businesses, the last 6 months have been a battle for survival and, on a theoretical level, this would appear to be exactly what Business Continuity Planning should be all about. However, since anecdotal evidence suggests that very few plans had considered this scale of crisis, it begs the question whether we have over-complicated our processes and are now missing the fundamental point of resilience planning?
Should Africa take a continental view of Higher Education post COVID-19? There are certainly many reasons why they should and COVID may provide an excellent opportunity to do just that. India’s new National Education Policy contains much that could be relevant to Africa as well, and Morocco could play a leading role in guiding Africa towards the provision of a joined-up, continent wide Higher Education system fit for the 21st century.
Many African nations took a very proactive approach to COVID in an attempt to mitigate the effect on their fragile health systems; however, from a purely economic perspective, prolonged lockdown and quarantine will have a significant effect. Businesses that routinely trade with Africa need to be assured that partners or suppliers are suitably resilient but may also need support if they are to stay afloat at all. Inverroy’s Africa Lead, Toby Ingram considers these issues and looks at Business Continuity and Resilience from a global perspective.
