Pathways through disruption: RDI Conference 2021

The 2021 RDI Network Conference, co-hosted by The University of Queensland (UQ),

It means you can join us fully online and in-person for this 2-day event and student forum showcasing research, initiatives, and innovations for the future of sustainable development and socio-economic recovery in the Pacific and Southeast Asia regions.

The event has the theme, Pathways through disruption – the future of sustainable development and recovery in the Pacific and Southeast Asia, and we invite consultants, practitioners and students to submit an abstract, proposal, or creative side-event.

Some of the sub-themes we will explore during the conference include:

  • Pathways to Sustainable Development
    From disruption to achieving integrated sustainable development through intersectional, localised, and transformative action.
  • Pathways to Improved Response and Recovery
    The future of emergency and disaster preparedness, coordination, response and recovery.
  • Forging Pathways Through Collaboration and Partnerships
    Collaborating and learning for improved practice, and the implementation of sustainable development and emergency response.
  • Pathways to Enhanced Climate Change Adaptation
    Towards sustainable biodiversity and environmental management with reference to livelihoods and adaptation of livelihoods.
The conference is aimed at:
