Online November Quarterly Meeting Roundup
30th November 2020
On November 19, Floodplain Management Australia held its combined November Quarterly Meeting online bringing together flood risk professionals from around the nation and overseas.
The Meeting included updates from the FMA Executive, Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (NSW), Queensland Reconstruction Authority, Department of Land, Water and Environment (VIC), Insurance Council of Australia and Bureau of Meteorology. The day also included a brief from the Young Floodplain Managers network of FMA discussing their upcoming End of Year event (more on that further in the Flyer).
For the afternoon workshop, FMA partnered with the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience (AIDR) to formally launch and showcase the recently finalised Flood Emergency Planning for Disaster Resilience Handbook.
The Workshop provided an overview of the Australian Disaster Resilience Handbook series, and featured leading Australian experts who contributed to the new Handbook unpacked the principles and practice of flood emergency planning.
A recording of the workshop will be made available at the AIDR website in the near future.
