Monash Disaster Resilience Initiative

The Monash Disaster Resilience Initiative focuses on preparing communities to strengthen their resilience through climate and disaster risk reduction. In 2021, MUDRI was a partner in the development of the Upper Beaconsfield Bushfire & Biodiversity Tool, which provides tailored, local information for residents in the Victorian towns of Upper Beaconsfield, Dewhurst and Guys Hill to make informed decisions about managing bushfire risks while protecting biodiversity on private property.

In addition, they joined up with the new Fire to Flourish program to organise the Forum on Growing Community-led Disaster Resilience and the Gender and Disaster Australia Conference, Gender Justice in Disaster: Inspiring Action.
