CIFAL Newcastle is the first CIFAL centre to be established within a university (from its inception), and the first to be established in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. The University was thrilled to be selected by UNITAR to host CIFAL Newcastle, due to its leadership in innovative training on disaster management and emergency response.

CIFAL Newcastle offers training activities on disaster management and risk reduction, and the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals at the local level.
