Virtual Conference & Exhibition
The theme for AFAC2021 is balancing impact and expectations. As recent emergency events have shown, there’s an evolving extreme that is producing new challenges in terms of impact on the community, environment and economies. The community expects the emergency management sector to stay ahead of these events but with resourcing challenges, overlapping seasons here and abroad, and the surge in reviews, inquiries and recommendations, what do agencies do differently? AFAC21 will focus on how we manage the consequences of major events and meet the expectations of the community and government. The program will explore how the sector can continue to learn and find opportunities to deliver with new and innovative approaches.
IIASA Guest Research Scholar Adriana Keating from the Systemic Risk and Resilience Research Group (SYRR) and Senior Research Scholar John Handmer from the Equity and Justice Research (EQU) and Systemic Risk and Resilience (SYRR) Research Groups, will deliver a keynote speech on "The value of CRC research".
Date: October 5th 2021
Time: 10:00-10:45 (UTC/GMT+11)
Conference stream presentations will be available to view on-demand until 31 January 2022.
