PANEL DISCUSSION: Embracing today’s uncertainty: how to govern towards future outcomes?

The future is uncertain but government cannot stand still. The crisis shows that the cost of late action can be high, especially when it comes to trade-offs that matter to us all (lives vs livelihood). Yet, decision-making cannot be paused or fast-forwarded into the future. Governments need to be ready to embrace uncertainty, and leverage challenges to govern better and deliver differently to meet evolving contexts. This panel will explore and compare emerging thinking about how we manage uncertainty and cutting edge approaches that are demonstrating, or have potential for, monumental transformation.
