Exposure to Risk and Experiences of River Flooding for People with Disability and Carers in the Northern Rivers of NSW: a seminar presented by Dr Jodie Baillie.
This will be steamed via Zoom.
The severity and frequency of weather-related disasters are likely to increase because of a warming climate. Catastrophic flooding occurred in the Northern Rivers, NSW in 2017 and again in 2022, exacerbating existing social inequalities. For people with disability and carers the impact can be especially profound.
In this session we explore the exposure to risk, experiences and mental health impacts for people with disability and carers six-months after river flooding in 2017. After the presentation there will be time for questions.
Date Thursday 18 August, time: 4pm to 5pm.
