Towards a Resilient Sydney Research Seminar presentation on Emergency Management

323

Published on

The report reviewed a range of international, national and Sydney specific literature and undertook interviews with relevant lead emergency management agencies. The report synthesised findings and undertook a gap analysis.

The report related largely to the resilience interrelationships of disaster risk reduction; emergency management; and community development. It also mapped the relevant legislation and governance arrangements in New South Wales.

 The three key issues identified as pressing for Sydney from the interviews with the emergency agencies representatives: 1) increased workload and strain on capacity; 2) declining volunteerism; and 3) uncertainty as to the effects and community response to hazards. The report notes that climate change may drive organisational change within emergency management – requiring a shared culture that supports a willingness to further develop strategic integration and coordination across agencies.

 Aspects of community development that are increasingly being viewed as critical to emergency management are volunteerism; social capital formation and disaster behavioural psychology. The report noted that no major studies were able to be sourced in relation to emergency management volunteerism, social capital formation or community disaster resilience in Sydney.
 In relation to flooding in Sydney, there is increasing potential risk to infrastructure. The report outlines that it is an imperative that emergency agencies have access to data from all infrastructure owners to enable future emergency planning in flood prone lands.
 There are generally gaps in research relating to recovery from disasters, potentially due to no major natural disasters in Sydney for over 10 years, but noting the research may come under other banners such as social work and health. Lower extent of research into heatwave and coastal erosion/inundation compared to flooding and bushfire. Lower level of research into the preparedness of communities / businesses in Sydney.
