An online seminar, Exposure to Risk and Experiences of River Flooding for People with Disability and Carers in the Northern Rivers of NSW is still open for registration.

It is presented by Dr Jodie Bailie and Associate Professor Michelle Villeneuve

This seminar will be streamed via Zoom
Date: Thursday 18 August 2022
Time: 4:00pm – 5:00pm AEST


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 will: 1) explore the risk and experiences of people with disability and carers of the Northern Rivers, six-months after river flooding in 2017 and 2) share tools that multiple stakeholders can use to address the gaps in preparedness for people with disability and carers.


This is being run by the University Centre for Rural Health in Lismore
