The black summer bushfires and COVID pandemic are reminders that we can all be affected by disasters - no matter who we are, where we live or what we do. The Community Disaster Resilience Strategy is a new project that aims to reduce the impact of disasters on Western Australians.
Researchers think that communities that are well-connected, have trusted leaders, are informed and are willing to help each other will be more resilient to the impact of disasters. Taking action to reduce risks and being prepared and able to adapt to change are also important characteristics.
We are talking to communities right across Western Australian to hear about their strengths and their ideas for disaster resilience. These ideas will inform the development of the Western Australian Community Disaster Resilience Strategy.
