The Disability Inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction (DIDRR) Framework and Toolkit for Queensland is a roadmap for how everyone can work together to co-design local, state and national responses to disaster and emergencies. It was informed by a series of inclusive community engagement consultations across Queensland, and with input and advice from the Advisory Committee.

This resource recognises the roles of, and the need for collaboration between all the stakeholders involved in planning, managing, and responding to disasters and emergencies.

This is key to reducing the risk for people with disability in emergencies and increasing the resilience of people with disability to disaster.

The Framework contains a number of practice tips and examples to help collaborators get started.

There is also a companion Resource Library that can help people with disability to prepare for emergencies, and also provide quick access to tools that enable the advancement of DIDRR practices at the local community level.

This development of this framework and toolkit was launched by Minister for Communities and Minister for Disability Services and Seniors Coralee O’Rourke on Tuesday 3 December 2019.
