REGISTRATIONS CLOSED 2019 Upper Hunter Economic Breakfast Series: Hunter Horizon 2020

How do we build resilience in a community to cope with, and lessen the impact of change?

DROUGHT, FIRE, CHANGING ECONOMY AND RESILIENCE

Building a strong and diverse economy enables rural and regional communities to better cope with fluctuations in key industry sectors (resources) and impact of adverse events (prolonged drought and fire threat, limited water resources).

Some economic and social changes are a slow burn with the impact sustained. Some response to change can be planned, while others are sudden and unexpected. How do we build resilience in a community to cope with, and lessen the impact of, these changes?

Drawing on case studies from other communities, and her own experience as Director of State Recovery Office (South Australia), Ronnie Faggotter will examine community resilience.

The Centre's Lead Economist, Dr Anthea Bill, connects national trends to local economic performance and explains implications for your organisation. The results will be summarised in our Upper Hunter Economic Indicators, released on the morning.

Join 120+ other guests on 1 April. Be informed, challenged, inspired and 'connected'.
