Australia: Disaster planning and recovery for Tasmanian businesses ‐ delivery of materials and training

Source(s):  AECOM
United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR)

AECOM (provider of services for infrastructure projects) was engaged by the Tasmanian Department of Premier and Cabinet Climate Change Office (TCCO) to develop a suite of online and printable resources to help Tasmanian businesses across a range of sectors develop practical and implementable strategies to prepare their business for disasters. The resources, when combined, can form a comprehensive emergency management plan for the business, and can be used as individual resources, depending on the business needs.

The case study highlighted the following lessons learned:

  • Business need proactive guidance and support to navigate and complete the templates; primary producers in particular.
  • Cooperation between government and the private sector is required to support businesses to use the materials.
  • Within the private sector, industry groups and peak bodies are central to support resilience planning, including opportunities to work with the private sector to promote the materials.
  • The importance of 'community-led' response during disasters was critical to recovery.

This case study is one of a series produced by members of ARISE, the UNISDR Private Sector Alliance for Disaster Resilient Societies.
