Webinar Recording - Creating connections


Emergencies break things apart. A key responsibility for emergency communicators is to create and strengthen the links between teams, organisations, groups, and individuals

Communication policy, strategy and practice needs to integrate our efforts from readiness, through response, to recovery. Insights gained, and lessons learned in recovery should also influence prevention and preparation. Disaster communication needs to be an ongoing conversation throughout the entire cycle.
