Monash Disaster Resilience Initiative


The Monash Disaster Resilience Initiative (MDRI) has been established to harness university-wide expertise with the goal of strengthening community-based disaster resilience. The aim is to provide the expertise to shape new approaches to disaster preparedness and management under the context of the Council of Australian Governments’ National Strategy for Disaster Resilience.


This will be achieved by using an all-hazard and interdisciplinary framework to shape research and, through a collaborative approach, by translating research into real-world applications for use by government, emergency services and community groups.


MDRI represents a rich collaborative venture between MIRI and the Department of Community Emergency Health and Paramedic Practice based in the Monash Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. MDRI is committed to advancing the professionalism of the emergency management workforce both nationally and within its region.
