 National Partnership Agreement on Natural Disaster Resilience

Natural Disaster Resilience Program

A two year National Partnership Agreement on Natural Disaster Resilience was agreed in 2013-14 by the Australian, state and territory governments. It establishes the mechanism through which the Australian Government provides the states with $26.1 million per annum to invest in disaster resilience projects which are prioritised by the states in accordance with their respective state-wide natural disaster risk assessments. States are responsible for securing matched funding, which may include third party and in-kind contributions.

In the agreement, states have increased flexibility to effectively meet the requirements of local communities threatened by disasters in the strategic context of their risk priorities. This recognises that different jurisdictions have different risks and priorities and that these may change over time.

Copies of the agreement and associated implementation plans are available on the Ministerial Council for Federal Financial Relations website.

Contact details for agencies in each jurisdiction will be updated as information becomes available.
