About the Disaster Risk Handbook

The new Disaster Risk Handbook will form part of the Australian Disaster Resilience Handbook Collection. It will provide guidance on national principles for Disaster Risk in Australia. It will incorporate a major review of the National Emergency Risk Assessment Guidelines (AIDR 2015) and reflect the new policy landscape established by the National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework (Home Affairs 2018) and insights and new approaches outlined in the Guidance for Strategic Decisions on Climate and Disaster Risk.  

The handbook will be developed through a process of national collaboration with input from a broad cross section of stakeholders and subject matter experts from Across Australia.
All handbooks are freely accessible on the AIDR knowledge hub at https://knowledge.aidr.org.au/collections/handbook-collection/.
