Resilient Community Organisations Toolkit

Resilient Community Organisations Toolkit - Australian Council of Social Service

Resilient Community Organisations is a toolkit to support community organisations build their resilience to disasters and emergencies. It includes:

  • A benchmarking tool so organisations can assess their current state of disaster preparedness and identify areas for improvement.
  • The Six Steps to disaster resilience with useful information and resources they need to take action.

The toolkit is informed by an international review of existing disaster resilience and climate adaptation tools for community organisations and has been created in consultation with subject matter experts. It adopts a risk management approach in line with the Australian/New Zealand Standard ISO 31000.
