A key priority for the National Recovery and Resilience Agency (NRRA) is to drive coordinated national effort to develop the second National Action Plan under the National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework (the Framework).
A central premise of the Framework is that by changing how we think about disasters and working together, we can take action to be better prepared and more resilient for whatever comes our way.
The NRRA, supported by AIDR, will be hosting the From Risk to Resilience Summit to convene leaders for action to reduce risk, prevent harm, and strengthen Australia's disaster resilience.
About the Summit
The primary objective of the Summit is to rethink disaster risk, present what NRRA has heard so far about priority themes and actions that have emerged during consultation, and engage in dialogue as to how those lead actions could be achieved. The Summit will encourage innovation, transformation and collaboration on collective disaster risk reduction actions to reduce systemic disaster risk.
The event will be thought provoking and engaging, and we welcome big system thinking. We are looking for passionate people, who feel a professional and moral obligation to use their authority or position to influence change in creating a more disaster resilient future for all Australians. We are inviting motivated people with expertise, across various levels and subject matters who represent environmental, economic, social and cultural interests, across all corners of Australia’s society.
Those attending will belong to other larger networks, champion systemic disaster risk reduction and the National Action Plan within their own networks and be personally motivated to reduce systemic disaster risk and aspire towards sustainable risk informed development.
