Project Summary

As the backbone of APEC economy, the business community, especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs), contributed enormously to the COVID-19 prevention and control but also suffered from the continued adverse impacts of the pandemic. For SMEs to build resilience against the impacts of such risks as natural disasters and public health contingency, and achieve sustainability in the post pandemic era, government departments, technical support agencies and SMEs themselves should all make due efforts. The project will hold a two-day hybrid Workshop on Risk-Smart Business for SMEs in the Post COVID-19 in Beijing, China for knowledge sharing and technical discussion on challenges facing SMEs and measures that government, technical agencies and enterprises could take to help build SMEs’ resilience. To lay a solid foundation for this project to achieve practical outcomes, China will develop Risk-informed Decision Making Framework for Resilience and Research Report on Methodology or Tools for Risk-informed Preparedness (names tbc) by using its own funds. The project will leverage on above-mentioned outputs to develop effective and feasible policy, technical and operational recommendations for resilient and sustainable recovery of SMEs in the post COVID and present them in Project Report.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: According to the UNDRR, if the global community is to improve the lives and livelihoods of people in emerging and developing economies, risk in small and medium enterprises (SMEs) must be tackled (UNDRR, 2020). As the bedrock of global, national and local markets, the business community is hit harder, suffer longer and is slower to recover than other communities especially when disasters strike. Lessons learned in these trying times show that decades of development gains may be wiped out in an instant unless the development is made resilient, risk-informed and climate-smart. To assist with effective and resilient recovery of SMEs in the post COVID-19, the project will hold a two-day Workshop on Risk-Smart Business for SMEs in the Post COVID-19 to bring together authorities, businesses, technical agencies and the academia from EPWG member economies as well as representatives from regional and international organizations to discuss about: 

a) The importance of raising risk awareness and enhancing risk knowledge of government authorities so as to make risk-informed decision and investment;

b) How the combined forces of disasters and public health contingency affected the business community, especially SMEs, and how they could build back better;

c) SMEs participation in the post COVID-19 risk-resilience building;

d) With guidance from government and technical agencies, how business continuity plans and business investment could adapt to the new normal of interconnected and mounting disaster risks;

e) Science, technology and innovation (STI) applied to promote resilient and risk-smart business recovery;

f) Economic incentives, disaster risk financing and risk transfer tools to help SMEs prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from such risks as natural disasters and public health contingency. 

Relevance – Eligibility and Fund Priorities: The proposed project seeks ASF Sub-Fund on APEC Cooperation on Combating COVID-19 and Economic Recovery (CCER). It is eligible for ASF CCER as it supports capacity building needs for APEC developing economies, echoes the fund priorities of expediting regional economic recovery, building resilience against future large-scale economic disruptions, and poses high potential to cover all member economies and several APEC sub-fora (SMEWG, HWG, PPWE, PPSTI, etc) under the theme of risk-smart business for SMEs in the post COVID-19.

Relevance – Capacity Building: The project will focus on SMEs from the following three perspectives: 

First, risk-informed decision making at government level to support SMEs build resilience against future risks and promote their sustainability in the post-pandemic era. 

Second, risk identification, monitoring and assessment tools or methodology at technical agency level to provide evidence-based emergency preparedness recommendations for the society and the industry, including SMEs. 

Third, resilience capacity building at SME level to strengthen supply chain, improve risk management, and raise awareness for risk-smart business. 

With these discussion points, the project will seek to address the following capacity building issues: 

1. Improved understanding of the adverse impacts of the COVID on SMEs;

2. Possible and applicable suggestions for SMEs to not only build back better from such risks as the COVID, but also achieve sustainability against future major disasters and public health contingency; and

3. Raising awareness of policy makers, practitioners, SME leaders and staff about risk-informed decision making, emergency preparedness and risk-smart business.

Objectives

Through the workshop and guidelines developed by this project, it hopes to provide guidance and suggestions for decision makers, practitioners and SMEs in APEC community about adaptation to post-pandemic landscape, risk-informed decision making, and integrating a risk-smart and climate-resilient philosophy into the post-COVID-19 business models and practices.


Alignment

Alignment - APEC: The project is mandated by the 2020 AELM Declaration paragraph 14, APEC Putrajaya Vision 2040 paragraph 4, and the third pillar of Aotearoa Plan of Action which encourages the following collective actions: 

“Cooperate in relevant APEC fora to develop, encourage and exchange best practice policies, and promote capacity building programmes, that address all environmental - climate change - and support sustainable growth.”. 

The project directly addresses sustainable development and resilient recovery issues in APEC economies, acknowledges the importance of implementing emergency measures designed to address COVID-19 challenges in the business sector, and will raise the awareness of implementing risk-informed and climate-smart measures to ensure that the business community is more immune to future large-scale risks. 

Alignment – Forum: In line with EPWG 2017-2020 Strategic Plan and APEC Disaster Risk Reduction Framework, the project will contribute to achieving the goal of “Adaptive and Disaster-Resilient Asia-Pacific Economies Supporting Inclusive and Sustainable Development”. It also aligns with EPWG Strategic Plan by: 

a) Promoting the development of effective business continuity and critical incident guides for enterprises;

b) Contributing to reducing vulnerability and promoting resilience;

c) Facilitating sharing of information, knowledge, expertise and experience learned from crises;

Focusing on medium- to long-term recovery of economic activity in COVID affected sectors.

2)  Best Practices Guideline (40 – 50 pages) 

Expediting resilient recovery of SMEs especially in the post-pandemic is not just a daunting task facing SMEs themselves. It requires whole-of society and whole-of industry efforts. The guideline will be developed by this APEC-funded project team to provide guidance and reference on supporting SMEs resilience building and risk-smart business at government, technical and business community level. As stated in the cover letter, EPWG China will do research on risk-informed decision making framework towards resilience and risk assessment tools by using its own funds. To avoid the low applicability of the Guideline to larger APEC community, the project team has invited experts and consultants from Tohoku University of Japan, National Climate Change Commission of the Philippines, Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences, UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub, UNDRR Asia-Pacific Regional Office, UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, and Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific of FAO, who have expertise and experience in carrying out relevant work from global and regional perspective. 

During the preceding self-funded project “Regional Economic Integration through the Lens of Disaster Resilience (EPWG 01 21S)”, EPWG China also did research on disaster resilience capacity building of the business community, which was a relatively general one focusing on challenges faced by enterprises, major components of resilient capacity building, and influencing factors of business resilience. By carrying out this self-funded project, the PO finds it necessary to study business resilience from a broader, more comprehensive and more targeted perspective and recognizes the role of government decision making and technology application in this process.

Linkages

The project organizers will make close contact with Ministry of Emergency Management of China and other related departments to understand the best practices, policies and challenges related to risk-smart business in the post pandemic.

Engagement: In line with topics under the three panel, this project seeks to cooperate with other APEC fora such as Small and Medium Enterprises Working Group (SMEWG), Policy Partnership on Science, Technology and Innovation (PPSTI), Policy Partnership on Women and the Economy (PPWE), Finance Ministers Process (FMP), APEC business Advisory Council (ABAC), APEC Climate Center and any other fora interested in the workshop. It will also invite representatives from UN agencies including UNDP, and other regional and international organizations in accordance with guidelines on non-APEC members participation.

Previous work: Both EPWG and SMEWG have done many project research on business sustainability and disaster risks respectively. But amdist increasing systemic risks, a risk-informed philosophy needs to be introduced and incorporated into the business sector.

Sustainability

The outputs of this project are expected to provide continued reference for government authorities, technical agencies and SMEs in APEC community. Post-pandemic sustainability and resilience of SMEs are to be achieved in a gradual manner, where we still have a long way to go to translate initiatives into actions. By encouraging the philosophy of risk-informed decision making, evidence-based emergency preparedness and resilient capacity building, the project could contribute to the first step of raising awareness and improving understanding. With government understanding the importance of risk-informed decision making and technical practitioners providing evidence-based risk and recovery information, SMEs will have more constructive suggestions to follow.

There will be a scheduled evaluation of project results in 3, 6, 12 months time.
