Canberra – Community Resilience: Connecting People and Data – Tuesday 1 November
Timely provision of quality data and intelligence that allows people to take well-informed decisions in the event of (natural) disasters greatly strengthens a community’s resilience. Australia and the Netherlands have been working together in this area for several years and see great potential for further development- both in their own countries as well as in third countries.
A morning seminar will look at National Forecasting System for Vietnam; International Collaboration through the 100 Resilient Cities Network; Design Thinking and Planning Charrettes for Resilient Cities; Capacity Building for Community Resilience.
An afternoon roundtable will discus further common AUSNED issues out of the morning session and the prospect of doing joint work in Asia or the Pacific.
Earlier in the day the signing of a “Letter of Intent on Cooperation in Third Countries” by Mrs. Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, Australian Minister for International Development and the Pacific and Mrs. Lilianne Ploumen, Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation will provide a timely stimulus for the day.
