Empowering resilience & knowledge
“By working together to drive a greater shift from response to prevention and preparedness, we will assist our communities to build their own resilience”
Hon Robert McClelland MP
Information Sharing for Emergency Response & Recovery 2011 Brisbane conference
In the aftermath of recent natural disasters, there is a growing national need and greater shift towards prevention and preparedness activities that enable community resilience. Investing time and resources into mitigation measures is less costly and can ultimately save lives.
Under the National Strategy for Disaster Resilience, jurisdictions are implementing policies and plans designed to help the community understand risk and share and communicate knowledge to build community resilience and trust. It will require government and community leaders to foster shared responsibility and to develop a smart approach to utilising technology that enables true interoperability.
The Disaster Resilient Communities conference will examine the prevention and preparedness plans being developed across jurisdictions to assess and understand risk. It will also focus on the relationships and networks being established to deliver this under the national agenda. Innovations in technology and engagement measures available to inform the community about risk will also be explored.
