Climate change, extreme weather events and social and economic impacts are leading to increased complexity, instability, and uncertainty in lives across the globe. But by working together, combining our strengths, and supporting community-led resilience, communities can build the resources and expertise they need for a healthy and sustainable future.
The new Community Collaborative for Resilience (the Collaborative) will be a go-to hub for communities, and supporting organisations, to connect to one another, share knowledge and resources and join collective discussions regarding disaster and climate change resilience. It will highlight community strengths and needs and support learning and collaboration across sectors, regions, and communities.
Currently under development, the Collaborative will help people to:
Connect to each other and other communities
Navigate and access existing information, tools, and resources
Share and gain knowledge, expertise, and insights
Build relationships and collaborate for change
A cross-sector steering committee is providing advice about foundational activities, including:
An organisational model and partnership framework
An interactive webspace to enable what we do
Networking and knowledge sharing opportunities
Avenues for co-design and community engagement will further inform the Collaborative’s activities and help to drive broader systems change and improvements in community-led resilience approaches and practice.
