Join us for this exciting debate, where international experts and high level Diaspora (students, researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, ordinary citizen) from the public and private sectors will give their views on the sustainability of mega and complex projects and big factories and how to ensure appropriate support arrangement in place in addition to the ongoing monitoring of the sustainability processes across these projects. The debate will examine various angles of risk surrounding mega and complex projects and the various health and safety regulations following several recent  industrial accidents in Sudan. In doing so, the panel will use recent industrial incidents in Sudan to draw lessons for risk management and various health and safety issues in complex and mega projects and big factories.

Risk management is critical in all projects particularly mega and complex projects. This debate will discuss the holistic understanding of the nature of risk and the role of risk management in complex and mega projects, with an emphasis on its role in projects and innovation. The debate will also outline the key processes involved in developing a risk management plan and techniques to identify, assess and manage risk. Moreover, the debate will also cover the impact of such complex projects and industrial disasters on the environment: air, water, land , marine and ecology and the social and health impact on humans. Implementing sustainability practices in mega and complex are very challenging processes and require careful planning and execution. Therefore, successful project management of mega and complex projects require organisations to develop structures and processes to govern the wide range of different sustainability practices. A holistic approach should be considered for designing sustainability frameworks with due consideration not only for the technological design, but also for the design of strategic sustainability of these systems.
