Disaster recovery expert Anne Leadbeater will offer her insights on local government and community-led recovery in a Red Cross-hosted webinar on 9 July.
Ms Leadbeater worked on behalf of the Murrindindi Shire Council to coordinate the initial recovery effort for communities in the Kinglake Ranges after the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009 when 173 people perished.
That recovery model was subsequently highlighted as a case study in the final report of the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission.
Since then, Ms Leadbeater has worked with communities recovering from drought, fire, flood, cyclone in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, and South Australia.
In 2014, she led an international team working with the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal for New Zealand Red Cross.
