AIDR handbooks and glossary update
AIDR is in the final stages of drafting for three handbooks in the Australian Disaster Resilience Handbook collection: Australian Emergency Management Arrangements, Disaster Health and Lessons Management.
In addition, updated terms related to bushfire, urban fire and risk will soon be published on the Australian Disaster Resilience Glossary.
Early drafting of the Land Use Planning for Natural Hazards Handbook is underway with the first draft being circulated with the working group for review. Thank you to all involved in review of these handbooks and the glossary and for your considerable time and effort.
Land Use Planning for Natural Hazards Handbook
AIDR is developing a new Land Use Planning for Natural Hazards Handbook. This resource will provide guidance on national principles and practices for land use planning in a disaster resilience context. The first draft of the new handbook has been developed and is currently being reviewed by a multidisciplinary expert reference group.
The new handbook will draw on and complement current and ongoing activity in land use planning and build on the capability and knowledge of organisations and individuals across the disaster resilience sector in Australia and internationally.

Lessons Management Handbook Review
The revised Lessons Management Handbook is in its third and final phase of review. A working group of subject matter experts from commonwealth and state agencies, non-government organisations, private sector and research institutes have led the review process. AIDR is grateful to working group members who have committed significant time and effort to the review process to date.
Highlights from the revised handbook include:
- articulation of high level principles of lessons management
- outline of frameworks for lessons management
- a new dedicated chapter to the lessons management process, with a section on the OILLS approach
- vignettes of lessons management in practice to illustrate key claims throughout the handbook.
The revised handbook is progressing well to meet the scoping brief and production timeline. AIDR has been invited to launch the handbook at the Lessons Management Forum in Sydney in July and currently discussing how this can be done with the forum organising committee.
