Actions government and emergency services can take on DIDRR | Leave Nobody Behind webinar series
The Leave Nobody Behind webinar series explores collaborative disability inclusive disaster risk reduction (DIDRR) practices. Join AIDR, and the Collaborating4Inclusion project team as we invite expert speakers to explore how government, emergency services, people with disability and the services that support them are working together to put person-centred and capability-focused approaches to DIDRR into action.

For too long, disability has been kept in the ‘too-hard basket’. Emergency personnel have not had the right tools to support meaningful inclusion, participation and tailored planning for disasters; community, health and disability service providers have not been integrated into emergency planning; and people with disability have been overlooked in emergency management policies and practice decisions. Confusion persists about who takes responsibility for people with disability in emergencies.

This webinar will focus on the role and contributions of Australian government and emergency services to developing DIDRR at the local community level. Through case studies, we will explore approaches that government and emergency personnel are using to put people with disability and their support needs at the centre of inclusive emergency management policy, planning and practice.
