Memoir to Claire Zara
The recent edition of the Australian Journal of Emergency Management features two important articles submitted by WHIN/WHGNE.  The first article is a touching tribute to gender and disaster researcher Claire Zara, who passed away earlier this year. Claire was a crucial part of the research team investigating violence after Black Saturday and she helped establish the Gender and Disaster Taskforce, for which the team won a Resilient Australia Award in 2014.

The second is an article on the
Victoria’s Gender and Disaster Taskforce. It discusses the innovative approach by Victoria by establishing the taskforce to mitigate the gendered risks and harms of disasters. It goes through the importance of considering gender in disasters and the aims of taskforce.
