Major post-event inquiries and reviews: review of recommendations
Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre
Number of pages
The purpose of this project is to generate a high level and comprehensive description of the major recurrent categories of recommendations across multiple post-disaster reviews conducted since 2009 in Australia. The project seeks to understand whether there is ongoing value for state and territory emergency services to consider the lessons from major reviews and inquiries from other jurisdictions within their own context, or whether lessons are too specific and lack broader import.
A core element of this project is the development of a comprehensive and user-friendly database of recommendations from post-event reviews and inquiries that can inform agencies own lessons identification practise now and into the future.
