This Community Engagement Framework provides guidance for those working in emergency management to effectively engage with the community. It is a key component in the implementation of the Council of Australian Governments' National Strategy for Disaster Resilience, supporting the recognition that: 'we need to develop and embed new ways of doing things that enhance existing arrangements across and within governments, as well as among business, the not-for-profit sector, and the community more broadly, to improve disaster resilience'. Disaster resilience is based upon existing strengths and relations. Individuals and communities are the starting point to build disaster resilience. Connecting and working in partnership with the community; building on existing networks, resources and strengths; identifying and supporting the development of community leaders and empowering the community to exercise choice and take responsibility are some of the practical actions outlined in this framework. To assist practitioners in their work with communities, the framework incorporates a model that details principles and approaches of community engagement in the emergency management context. The model draws on the internationally recognised International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) Public Participation Spectrum
