The 2012 Australian and New Zealand Disaster and Emergency Management Conference has issued a call for papers for its 16–18 April 2012 event at the Brisbane Convention Centre next year.

The conference is a joint initiative of the Australian Institute of Emergency Services (Queensland Division), the Australian and New Zealand Mental Health Association Inc and the Association for Sustainability in Business Inc, all non-government, not-for-profit, member-based organisations.

The conference has been designed to provide a forum to examine the issues surrounding natural and man-made hazards, according to Angela Stuart, joint association conference coordinator.

It is a response to the Council of Australian Governments’ (COAG) National Strategy for Disaster Resilience to adopt “a whole-of-nation resilience-based approach to disaster management, which recognises that a national, coordinated and cooperative effort is needed to enhance Australia’s capacity to withstand and recover from emergencies and disasters”.

The conference organisers have issued a call for papers under any of the conference streams:

  • Research
  • People Management
  • Mitigation
  • Climate Change
  • Relief & Recovery—Health, Local Business, Infrastructure
  • Volunteers
  • Response
  • Business Continuity
  • Crisis Management
  • Media—from radio to the internet
  • Risk Assessment
  • Policy and Governance
