About the conference

The inaugural Australian Disaster Resilience Conference will run concurrently with AFAC18 powered by INTERSCHUTZ, Australasia’s largest emergency management conference and exhibition. The program theme “The rise of resilience: from the individual to the global” will explore a number of sub-themes including:

  • measuring and assessing disaster resilience
  • new directions in resilience thinking
  • enhancing recovery through greater community resilience
  • education
  • activities and case studies
  • human behaviour to animals.

The Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC Research Forum precedes the conference and focuses on the science that is making an impact across the sector. The Research Forum provides a valuable addition to the Australian Disaster Resilience Conference program.
