University of Sydney
Number of pages
These guidelines are for local emergency managers and disability support providers to understand Disability Inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction (DIDRR) principles and suggest practical activities to engage the community in building resilience.
The guidelines are an outcome of bringing together emergency managers and disability support providers in three New South Wales communities in Australia, to develop a shared focus on community strengths, challenges, and resources for DIDRR and build a local knowledge base in DIDRR. These guidelines were developed as part of the project 'Disability Inclusive Disaster Preparedness in NSW: Enabling Community Resilience Through Collaboration. A project funded under the joint State/Commonwealth Natural Disaster Resilience Program.
