National Recovery Forum
The National Recovery Forum was originally scheduled to occur in 2021.
The event has been postponed until 2022 and will proceed when conditions allow us to gather in person.
Throughout Australia we continue to see the impacts of disasters on different communities, individuals and families and we know the predictions for future disaster impacts. There is a broad call to build recovery capability in both the professional workforce and in our communities in early relief and recovery through to long term resilience.
Disaster recovery is complex societal work and at its best is about people’s strengths, dignity, healing and about how we go about building generative communities. Frameworks that help us to navigate complexity encourage the bringing together of multiple perspectives to make sense of what is going on.
You are invited to join community members and recovery practitioners from around Australia to build and share knowledge and practice about disaster recovery, and connect, reflect, and inspire each other about recovering well from disasters and building resilient futures.
Areas of recovery that will be covered on the day include:
- Lessons implemented in recovery - partnerships with local entities, business recovery, the built environment, relief and clean up provision, natural environment
- Community-led recovery and resilience and community capacity in recovery
- Inclusion and equity, including community engagement
- Leadership in recovery
- Coordination and collaboration (including donations of goods, volunteers and donations of time, service provision)
- Sustaining the recovery workforce
