Addressing challenges for future strategic-level emergency management: reframing, networking, and capacity-building.

Addressing challenges for future strategic-level emergency management: reframing, networking, and capacity-building.

“Drawing on the literature, a survey, and interviews and workshops with Australia’s senior emergency managers, this paper presents an analysis of five core challenges that these pressures are creating for strategic-level emergency management. It argues that emphasising ‘emergency management’ as a primary adaptation strategy is a retrograde step that ignores the importance of addressing socio-political drivers of vulnerabilities.”
