First Nations Peoples are disproportionately impacted by disasters in Australia.
However, little research or practice guidance exists about the impacts of disasters and how the recovery system can better support recovery for First Nations communities.
This free webinar presented by the Australian Institute of Disaster Resilience (External link) will give research, policy and practice insights.

Sam is Community Partnerships and Development Officer at the Red Cross and will discuss the recovery effort following the 2019 Townsville monsoon and flooding event, and the work undertaken in recovery and preparedness with Indigenous Communties in Northern Queensland.
Bhiamie is an Indigenous man from the Euahlayi people in north-west NSW. Bhiamie is a Research Associate and PhD Candidate at the ANU Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research.
