Announcements > Australia's first disaster resilience conference is just around the corner!

When a disaster hits a community, it's personal - everyone is affected, and everyone has a role. Whatever sector you're from, the first-ever Australian Disaster Resilience Conference will give you fresh insight into building resilience in the face of disasters. Join researchers and practitioners from around the country to share knowledge, broaden your thinking and add your voice to important national conversations.

Register for the conference to explore:
• strategy, policy and new directions in resilience thinking
• effective recovery programs
• measuring and assessing resilience
• managing animals in disasters
• building resilience through education for young people.

The Australian Disaster Resilience Conference will run from 6-7 September 2018 in Perth, concurrently with AFAC18, Australia's leading emergency management conference and exhibition. Be part of this flagship event with government, community groups, NGOs, research organisations, emergency services, education and the private sector.
