Don’t miss out on the opportunity to help shape the AFAC21 Conference Program.

The AFAC21 team invites you to share your knowledge, research and projects at AFAC21 powered by INTERSCHUTZ, taking place from 17-20 August 2021 in Sydney.

The Call for Abstracts will close on Monday 8 February 2021.

AFAC21 will explore the theme: Balancing impact and expectations. As recent emergency events have shown, there’s an evolving extreme that is producing new challenges in terms of impact on the community, environment and economies. The community expects the emergency management sector to stay ahead of these events but with resourcing challenges, overlapping seasons here and abroad, and the surge in reviews, inquiries and recommendations, what do agencies do differently? AFAC21 will focus on how we manage the consequences of major events and meet the expectations of the community and government. The program will explore how the sector can continue to learn and find opportunities to deliver with new and innovative approaches. The committee encourages you to submit an abstract for the Research Day, AFAC Conference or a Conference Poster under one of the following supporting topics:new approachesembedding research into practicelooking after ourselves and otherscommunities.Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be part of Australasia’s premier emergency management conference and exhibition. Abstract submissions close on Monday 8 February 2021.
