Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience

About AIDR

The Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience (AIDR) is the National Institute for disaster risk reduction and resilience. We collaborate across sectors to strengthen the resilience of Australian communities to disasters.

AIDR creates, grows, and supports a range of networks; provides opportunities for learning, development, and innovation; shares knowledge and resources to enable informed decision making and action; and facilitates thought leadership through national conversations.

AIDR contributes to a more disaster resilient Australia through four key influencing strategies that encapsulate AIDR’s work: 

  • Actively supporting, growing and sustaining a range of networks across sectors and jurisdictions.
  • Enabling those with a role in disaster risk reduction and resilience to come together
    to learn, develop and innovate.
  • Collecting, developing, curating and sharing knowledge to educate and promote good practice in disaster risk reduction and resilience.
  • Providing a central focus point for national thought leadership on disaster risk reduction and resilience.
