The US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has stated that “The World is changing in ways that can have major effects on the emergency management community.” Our environment is evolving at a rapid pace and the emergencies that we are encountering are evolving just as quickly in terms of scope and complexity.

If we are to be resilient to the evolving emergency management challenges of the future, we need to build an understanding of what might be changing, as well as the skills and resources we will need to effectively cope with these challenges.
