Diversity in Disaster Conference
17–18 April 2018
Melbourne Cricket Ground, Brunton Ave, Richmond, Melbourne

Every year people and communities across Australia experience emergencies and natural disasters, but not all members of communities are equally affected.

Many people from diverse, marginalised or underrepresented communities experience disasters differently, facing unique challenges that influence their ability to respond and recover.

How do we empower communities of all backgrounds to be more resilient to an emergency or natural disaster? How can we support them to bounce back and thrive?

Designed to enhance resilience and raise awareness of the needs and strengths of all in the community, the Diversity in Disaster conference will engage emergency management practitioners, policy-makers and community services leaders with the latest research on disaster resilience.

This unique National Conference is consistent with the Sendai Framework and supports the Focus of the 2017 UNISDR International Day of Disaster Reduction: “Reducing the number of people affected by disasters”.
