Building Back Better: Is Queensland Ready For Its Next Natural Disaster?

“Disaster management is not just managing natural disasters. It’s also about prevention and preparedness.”

A year on from the devastating 2022 East Coast floods, the most expensive natural disaster in Australia’s history, how must Queensland adapt to make it more resilient to future floods, bushfires, cyclones and other extreme weather events?

On Thursday 9 March 2023, we were joined by QLD Deputy Premier Steven Miles; Mayor of Moreton Bay Council Peter Flannery; Professor Cheryl Desha for the School of Engineering and Built Environment and Theme Leader for Cities Research at Griffith University; and Suncorp Group CEO Steve Johnston.

This event was hosted in partnership with Suncorp.
