For Australians and those across the world, the events of late 2019 and 2020 have been a startling and distressing stride into incredibly challenging realities. The horror of seeing large swathes of the country burn in bushfires that took 33 lives and destroyed homes, livelihoods and environments, followed shortly thereafter by the onset of a pandemic that has changed the way we are able to live our lives, has impacted us all and will continue to do so over a long period of time.In the face of such challenges, and those to yet come, resilience to disasters is more important than ever.This presentation will share insights and reflections on the Black Summer of bushfires and give a high-level overview of current trends influencing disaster resilience strategy and action. It will touch on areas such as building disaster resilience and reducing disaster risk; resilience in buildings, infrastructure and systems; strengthening partnerships to address systemic climate and disaster risk; leadership from diverse groups; and growing cross-sector collaboration.Building resilience to disasters is not just for emergency services. These trends will be discussed in the context of the important role decision makers in all areas across the business, government, education and community sectors can play to make wise choices that make Australia a safe and prosperous place to live, now and into the future.
