S3 Episode 4
In Conversation with Natalie Egleton
Natalie Egleton joins us to discuss the future of community-led recovery and her work across rural and regional Australia as CEO of the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal.
This is a timely discussion about how we approach community-centred and community-led recovery: what does it really mean and how do we achieve it by resourcing and embedding fit-for-purpose systems in our response frameworks?
Natalie and Scotia discuss the challenge of fatigue and depletion that comes with dealing with successive disasters. Natalie shares FRRR’s on-the-ground research into the impact this is having on communities and what they need to replenish and rejuvenate their recovery capability.
They also explore how recent events have prompted a new depth of thinking around how we approach crisis in communities and the importance of resourcing and investing at a community level to provide the right capacity support for the future.
