Peter Willis, Co-Founder, Drought Response Learning Initiative

Originally from the UK but since 1993 in Cape Town, Peter has spent 25 years teaching, facilitating and advising at executive and board level on strategic issues of sustainability and resilience. From 2002-14 he was South African Director of the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership.For the past five years he has worked with Africa’s largest general insurer, Santam, to help change the way systemic risk is understood and dealt with across the industry. In the wake of the near-disastrous Cape Town drought of 2015-18, he and a film-making partner have developed the Cape Town Drought Response Learning Initiative, a ground-breaking approach to helping a city reflect on, document and learn from the ways it responded to the crisis. Peter has a degree in medieval history from Oxford University and thinks of himself as a professional generalist.
