Abstract/Summary In early 2014 several communities in East Gippsland were severely impacted by bushfires. The Goongerah- Deddick Trail fire impacted the communities of Goongerah, Bonang, Tubbut and Bendoc, while the Mt Ray Boundary Track fire impacted the Glenaladale, Fernbank, Walpa and Iguana Creek communities. The two areas will be referred to through this report as the Mountain Rivers1 region for the former and Glenaladale area for the latter. After the fires, East Gippsland Shire Council (EGSC) implemented the Adaptation for Recovery Project (the Project). This project used a new approach to disaster recovery based on a modified "strengths-based" or "asset-based-community development" approach. RMIT was engaged to undertake the evaluation of the project. The approach was developed collaboratively with EGSC, key stakeholders and community representatives. It involved reviewing project documentation, organisational stakeholder interviews (x 12), community member interviews (x 10), community evaluation meetings (x5) and a vox pop session at a Project community event. This report provides a summary of the evaluation of the Project. It presents key findings and recommendations to inform implementation of similar models in future fire-affected communities. Further detail and information can be found in the full evaluation report, the "Adaptation for Recovery Evaluation Report for East Gippsland Shire Council". A separate report prepared by Future Creation, "Adaptation for Recovery: Learning from the East Gippsland Experience", documents particular lessons gained from the implementation of the 'asset-based-community- development' (ABCD) model through the Project.2
