Fire, Cyclone & Flood Disaster Management and Recovery Forum
15th Nov 17
Attend the 2nd ANZ Disaster and Emergency Management Forum
Innovations in Disaster Risk Reductions, Humanitarian Relief and Crisis Response
6-8 August 2018, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
Disasters such as Black Saturday, Cyclone Larry, and Cyclone Debbie have continued to surprise mankind by unleashing its destructive power swiftly and unexpectedly. The catastrophes, unspeakable tragedies, and gargantuan losses behove an urgent and critical need to institutionalise post-natural disaster resilience.
“Building back the Nation’s Resilience to Natural Disaster” – Preparedness, Response, Recovery, and Mitigation is thus essential in limiting the damage on people and communities. In recent years, efforts in disaster management have gained momentum from the unprecedented advances in information, communication, and innovation technologies, with wide-ranging applications in disaster preparedness, mitigation, and management.
To build a resilient ANZ requires a paradigm shift from a response-recovery governance to a risk-sensitive development approach and a stronger attempt in regional cooperation for managing trans-boundary disasters. With this in mind, we cordially invite you to the 2nd ANZ Disaster and Emergency Management Forum on 6 – 8 August 2018 to join the discussion with our stellar speaker lineup from the government, academic, and private sectors in the region.
