This study is analysing Australia’s national framework policy for disaster management, the National Strategy for Disaster Resilience, to assess its efficacy as a public policy instrument for supporting the development of localised disaster resilience across Australia.

The project is focused predominantly on the policies, governance and institutions that operationalise the Strategy’s principles and priority ‘areas for action’ that are dependent on community engagement and require a consideration of the intersection between government and the community.
