This presentation was given by Neil Dufty to the Australian and New Zealand Disaster and Emergency Management Conference held in Brisbane on 16-18 April 2012.
The paper and presentation develop a learning framework to build community disaster resilience based on evidence. The presentation shows that education, communications and engagement (ECE) is required across three interrelated fields: disaster risk reduction, emergency management and community development.
The presentation also outlines best practices in ECE including using a community participatory approach, forming social capital through learning and the promotion of social media use before, during and after hazard events.
