Community Engagement for Disaster Resilience Handbook Showcase

AIDR will host its second Handbook Showcase webinar during AIDR Knowledge Week to launch the highly anticipated Community Engagement for Disaster Resilience Handbook.

The new Community Engagement for Disaster Resilience handbook presents community engagement as a critical component of emergency management and action to reduce disaster risk and strengthen resilience. Disaster resilience cannot be developed for, or on behalf of, communities but relies on the sharing of information, understanding, decision-making, responsibility and resourcing within and between communities and partners.

Tune in to this free 60-minute webinar to hear from leading Australian experts as they unpack the principles and practice of Community Engagement for Disaster Resilience.

Guest speakers include:

  • Dr Margaret Moreton, Leva Consulting and author of the handbook
  • Alana Pedler, Australian Red Cross
  • Peter Middleton, Tasmania Fires Service

The webinar will be moderated by Amanda Leck, AIDR Executive Director.
