New Handbook development – seeking EOIs from writers

AIDR is seeking expressions of interest from writers to support the scoping, review and development of three handbooks.

AIDR is scheduled to review the Evacuation Planning Handbook (AIDR 2017) in 2021-22 and is also scoping the development of two new Handbooks on the topics of disaster resilience in the urban context (resilient cities) and environmental/ecosystem disaster resilience. 

Evacuation Planning Handbook

Ideally, the writer for the Evacuation Planning Handbook will have a social science and/or community safety background. They will have a strong track record of collaboration and facilitation of multi-stakeholder processes, can synthesise and organise information effectively and write well.

The review will incorporate recommendations handed down by the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements, up to date evidence from research and leading practice, and expert advice from key stakeholders on the need to incorporate national guidance on the needs of people in evacuation centres who experience greater vulnerability.

Resilient cities and environmental disaster resilience handbooks

AIDR is seeking writers to support the scoping process for these new handbooks. Writers will ideally have relevant subject knowledge, skills in research, collaboration and facilitation of multi-stakeholder processes, synthesis and organisation of information from a range of sources, and be able to write effectively for a public audience.
