Community consultation and public participation in disaster management provide tangible benefits. However, despite recognition of their importance, effective implementation is a challenge for the emergency management sector.

AEMI’s Engaged and Resilient Communities: Workshop on Community Engagement for Emergency Management will bring the emergency management sector and community engagement experts together to explore the big questions about community engagement; the challenges and the implications for disaster resilience.

The Engaged and Resilient Communities workshop will be held at the Australian Emergency Management Institute at Mt Macedon Victoria on 17 – 19 May, 2011.
