Natural disaster management: collaborative communities for safer futures


This policy paper examines the performance of frameworks related to natural disaster management in Queensland and the challenges remaining. It proposes the adoption of a series of recommendations in order to place Queensland in a stronger, more resilient position in the face of future disasters: (i) for more quantitative analysis of investment and modifications to disaster management arrangements on prevention, preparation, response and recovery efforts to be conducted; (ii) for the Queensland government to incentivise small and medium sized businesses to implement business continuity planning; (iii) for measures to reduce the mental health impact, and subsequent economic and social impact of natural disasters to be introduced.
