The Australian Disaster Resilience Index is an industry-first snapshot of the capacities for disaster resilience in Australian communities.

Understanding these capacities, and how they differ from place to place, will help communities, governments and industry work together to cope with and adapt to natural hazards such as bushfires, floods, storms and earthquakes.

Join the Lead Researcher for the Australian Disaster Resilience Index, Dr Melissa Parsons from the University of New England, for this hands-on, experiential workshop that will provide a customised exploration of the research and website tools in your local or agency context.

 

The Australian Disaster Resilience Index will support you with activities such as:
  • Policy development
  • Risk assessment
  • Emergency planning
  • Strategic planning
  • Resource planning
  • Community planning
  • Business development
  • Emergency planning
  • Recovery planning
  • Regional development
  • Research and modelling
  • Business development
  • Community engagement
  • Urban planning
  • Strategic planning
  • Monitoring and evaluation
  • Community profiling
 

 

What will you learn?

  • Learn how to use the website tools to explore place-based disaster resilience, coping and adaptive capacities
  • Work through a real-life example of using the website tools to enhance your planning and decision making, with expert guidance on hand
  • Develop an understanding of the factors that enhance or constrain disaster resilience in your local area
  • Connect with peers to share ideas and learn how the Index is being used in other organisations
  • Find out more about the underpinning research

 

What should you bring?

You must bring a laptop to this workshop, and you are strongly encouraged to join with a current example or idea in mind about how your organisation may like to use the Australian Disaster Resilience Index.

During the session, you will be guided to use the website tools to explore your case study and discuss options with peers and the research team.
