Reimagining program monitoring and evaluation for disaster resilience outcomes

Source(s):  Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre (BNHCRC)

Resilience is an approach to living with, managing, and adapting to aspects of change, complexity and uncertainty, including that arising from emergencies and disasters. A resilient community has the capacities and opportunities to: identify risk; absorb disruptive events and return to a functioning state; and, adapt or transform in anticipation of, or in response to, disruptive events. Community resilience arises from the ways that these capacities are valued, prioritised and addressed by community, government, business, and individual actions and activities - a so-called system of resilience. 

Disaster resilience is a new organising principle for the work that Australian emergency agencies undertake with communities. Agency programs directly or indirectly seek to enhance the capacities of communities to survive, thrive and adapt within a landscape of bushfires, floods, storms and cyclones. Yet agencies are also required to demonstrate the contribution that their programs make to disaster resilience.

This report is a self-reflective guide for taking program evaluation for disaster resilience outwards to examine progress and tracking towards goals of disaster resilience.
