Participating organisations

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) in Victoria plays a role in helping to prepare for, respond to and recover from an emergency event. DELWP is one of several organisations responsible for managing fire on Victoria's 7.6 million hectares of public land, or roughly one third of the State. This includes reducing the risk of fire, containing outbreaks and managing environmental effects. DELWP also has responsibilities for animal welfare and the recovery of rural enterprises after emergencies such as fires and floods.

DELWP undertake a range of research in partnership with the CRC and other organisations. For more information see www.delwp.vic.gov.au/safer-together/science-and-technology
