The Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience (AIDR) is the National Institute for disaster risk reduction and resilience. We collaborate across sectors to strengthen the resilience of Australian communities to disasters.
AIDR creates, grows, and supports a range of networks; provides opportunities for learning, development, and innovation; shares knowledge and resources to enable informed decision making and action; and facilitates thought leadership through national conversations.
AIDR is supported by its partners: the Australian Government National Recovery and Resilience Agency, AFAC and the Australian Red Cross.
Visit our website to explore the Knowledge Hub, the Australian Disaster Resilience Handbook Collection and the Australian Journal of Emergency Management online. Learn more about professional development opportunities and scholarships for emergency management volunteers.
This year, AIDR will host the Australian Disaster Resilience Conference, which will run as a two-stream conference concurrently with the AFAC22 program. AFAC22 delegates will have the opportunity to attend sessions in the Australian Disaster Resilience Conference as part of their conference registration.
AIDR is proud to sponsor the Knowledge Centre at the AFAC22 powered by INTERSCHUTZ exhibition, sharing the latest in knowledge generated from research and projects occurring across the emergency management sector.
