The 12th Australasian Natural Hazards Management Conference will stretch your thinking on what is possible, and what needs to be done in natural hazards management to prepare for the future that we are likely to face.
Delegates at the 2019 Australasian Natural Hazards Management Conference will help develop a strategic view on whether research and formal reviews of natural hazards from around Australia, New Zealand, and across the globe, are providing us with the best knowledge to deal with the extreme hazards of our future. The program will be staged around an exploration of this massive impact.
The conference program will start with a scene-setting opening on the Monday evening. Tuesday will be dedicated to exploring the multiple impacts of an extreme weather event and their relationship to current research and emergency management policies. On Wednesday, the conference will draw together all the necessary parts to take Australia and New Zealand into the next decade well-prepared, focused, and confident to manage the extreme impacts of natural hazards.
Attendance at the conference will be limited to allow for plenty of good discussion and debate, both in a plenary format with expert speakers and in facilitated break-out sessions. Participants will be required to contribute. New ways of thinking about the issues will be encouraged. Your views will count. Your vision on how to use research and influence policy is needed.
The conference is aimed at people who are called upon to deal with the impacts of natural hazards including those from research, government (local, state, and federal), fire and emergency service agencies, community and volunteer groups, health, essential services (power, gas, water), and others.
