The 2015-17 National Partnership Agreement (NPA) on Natural Disaster Resilience provided funds for the SA Natural Disaster Resilience Program. The associated SA Implementation Plan which identifies priority funding areas for South Australia is currently being finalised.

Key Principles of the Natural Disaster Resilience Program include:

  • public value
  • shared responsibility
  • collaborationacross sectors
  • capability development
  • sustainability

The Natural Disaster Resilience Program supports projects that have:

  • primary regard for the public interest;
  • key benefits being the improvement of emergency management capability and/or community resilience; and
  • consistency with the national resilience agenda.

The following documents further articulate these ideals.

National Strategy for Disaster Resilience and Companion Booklet

The National Strategy for Disaster Resilience. was endorsed by the Council of Australian Governments in February 2011. The purpose of the Strategy is to provide high-level guidance on disaster management to federal, state and local governments, business and community leaders and the not-for-profit sector.

Examples of projects being undertaken throughout Australia that support the National Strategy can be found in the National Strategy for Disaster Resilience Companion Booklet and the 2015 Progress to Date Report.

National Action Plan for the Attraction, Support and Retention of Emergency Management Volunteers

The National Action Plan was revised and re-endorsed by the Ministerial Council for Police and Emergency Management in 2012. The Plan proposes 11 national actions to enhance volunteer attraction, support and retention. Whilst these actions relate to the national level, they may also be useful in guiding state and agency based planning. To view the document, click here.
