Over the past two years, the Australian Disaster Resilience Conference has grown to be a vibrant and impassioned gathering where people from a range of sectors come together to share knowledge and build connections for a disaster resilient Australia.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic means that it is not suitable to host a large-scale event in just over three months.
It is with deep regret that we announce that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Australian Disaster Resilience Conference, scheduled to run in conjunction with AFAC20 powered by INTERSCHUTZ in Adelaide 26-27 August 2020, will not be able to run as planned.
Resilience at this time means that we must adapt, transform and change. To this end, AIDR is pleased to share that we are currently looking into hosting an online ‘Knowledge Week’ event in place of the conference this year. Planning is underway, and full details will be communicated when available.
We look forward to working with you to share knowledge to support a disaster resilient Australia.
