AIDR Recovery Matters webinar series: Community-led recovery

Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience

The new Recovery Matters webinars will get to the heart of key issues that are important in disaster recovery. Join the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience that invites expert speakers to share what they know and help to move forward with bushfire recovery.

Community-led recovery

Community-led recovery is one of the National Principles for Disaster Recovery and an important part of moving forward effectively. So what is it all about and how can you put it in action with bushfire affected communities?

Webinar host:

Amanda Leck, AIDR Executive Director

Guest Speakers:

  • Louise Mitchell, Social Recovery Reference Group. Louise will provide an overview of community-led recovery, how it has been applied after disasters in the context of COVID-19.

  • Margaret Darveniza, Townsville City Council. Margaret will speak to her experience facilitating communications, intelligence and advocacy on behalf of the community to enable them to lead their recovery, and what’s happening with recovery in Townsville a year on from unprecedented floods. 

Who should attend?

Anyone with a role or interest (paid or voluntary) in supporting disaster recovery is welcome to attend.

Recovery Matters webinars will assist people who are newer to recovery to learn from experts as they get up-to-speed with good practice, and more experienced recovery workers to build, refresh and reflect on their practice as applied in current circumstances.
