The Leave Nobody Behind webinar series showcases action-oriented good practice in Disability Inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction (DIDRR). Expert speakers from each DIDRR stakeholder group (government and emergency services, people with disability, and disability support services) share case studies of current progress, specific actions, implementation challenges and how they are being tackled, as well as what needs to happen next. Together the series demonstrates that key to success is multi-stakeholder collaborative action.
The Leave Nobody Behind project, through the Collaborating4Inclusion Research team, has been working in local government areas across New South Wales to gather research and develop practice that builds cross-sector community capacity to ensure that nobody is left behind when disasters strike. The final outcome of the project is a national framework for cross-sector collaborative action on DIDRR. Consistent with the research team’s commitment to co-production, the framework will be supported by multi-stakeholder consultation; beginning with the Leave Nobody Behind webinar series.
