  • This is a free event for CJU members.

Registration is closed

Disaster resilience is a crucial aspect of climate justice. As climate change unfolds, extreme weather events such as heatwaves, bushfires, storms and floods are growing more intense, frequent and unpredictable. Ensuring our communities are equipped with the skills and resources to plan, respond to, and recover from disasters is critical to looking after each other and reducing vulnerabilities.

The Community Disaster Resilience Strategy (CDRS) is a WA State Government policy process around emergency management and disaster preparedness. It is in the final stage of public consultation before it is submitted to the State Government who will then develop the new policy.

There is currently a discussion paper which outlines the results of consultation and public engagement so far, and submissions responding to the discussion paper are being accepted until the end of March.

You can find the link to the full discussion paper here, and the summary of the paper here.

This briefing is to provide a space to go through the main points of the Community Disaster Resilience Strategy, its strengths, weaknesses and gaps, and will be an opportunity for you to provide some input into CJU’s submission.

It will also be a space to talk about how CJU engages with disaster resilience more broadly, and what that work could look like going forward. 

We look forward to seeing you there!

We acknowledge that we begin our work as The Climate Justice Union on the Boodja (land) of the Wadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We honour the Wadjuk people and their kin in other Nations and Country across these lands and waters, who have always cared for this place and all who lived here.

We acknowledge First Nations Elders past and present, and acknowledge that those of us living here, who came from across the seas, live on land that was taken, stolen. We acknowledge the responsibility that comes with this understanding and that we personally and collectively benefit from this theft.

As such, we all have a responsibility to decolonise ourselves, our lives and work, and to heal the harm these oppressive systems have inflicted.
