Disaster resilience has become an integral part of Australia's ability to anticipate and respond to man-made and natural disasters that pose population-level threats to society, the national economy and the environment. From fire, drought and flood, to the long-term impacts of climate change, we recognise the growing importance of preparing communities to help themselves.
We are making significant gains in the area of disaster resilience with the aim of improving community preparedness and recovery in the event of a disaster.
Through high-quality research, education and community engagement, we are challenging and supporting communities, governments and organisations to strengthen their resilience against major disasters.
MUDRI / EMV Compendium of Case Studies
Victorian Community-based Resilience Building Activities
Emergency Management Victoria (EMV) and the Monash University Disaster Resilience Initiative (MUDRI) share a strong interest in helping communities develop their resilience, particularly in the setting of disasters / emergencies / unexpected events.
As a result the creation of this Compendium of case studies reflects Victorian Community-based Resilience Building Activities, which represents an Australian first.
People interested in strengthening the resilience of their communities can draw on the examples and expertise embedded within each project.
The creators of each project are keen to share their ideas, how they overcame challenges, discovered new directions or found that unexpected piece of wisdom.
Our research is driven by the Monash University Disaster Resilience Initiative (MUDRI)
