Queensland Strategy for Disaster Resilience
The Queensland Reconstruction Authority has updated the original Queensland Strategy for Disaster Resilience, developed in 2014, to incorporate climate change risk and deliver a comprehensive, all-hazards approach to building disaster resilience throughout Queensland.
To deliver on the commitments outlined in the Strategy, the Queensland Reconstruction Authority will consult with local governments, state agencies, the private sector, academic institutions and community organisations on the development of an Implementation Plan to help ensure community-focused disaster resilience initiatives are identified and actioned.
The Strategy now aligns with international best practice - the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.
The Strategy is underpinned by its four key objectives:
- Queenslanders understand their disaster risk
- Strengthened disaster risk management
- Queenslanders are invested in disaster risk reduction
- There is continuous improvement in disaster preparedness, response and recovery
The Strategy provides an overarching framework to empower Queenslanders to factor in resilience measures and activities as they anticipate, respond and adapt to changing circumstances.
