Australian Disaster Resilience Handbook Collection: Handbook 7
This handbook has been developed with consideration of the National Strategy for Disaster Resilience (COAG 2011), which was adopted by the Council of Australian Governments in 2011, and the findings of state and national reviews following the multiple flood events of 2010 to 2012 that resulted in widespread flooding. It is intended to provide broad advice and guidance on all important aspects in managing flood risk in Australia.
This handbook should be used in conjunction with its companion technical guidelines and supporting documents available below and any relevant jurisdictional equivalents. Every attempt has been made to adopt a national approach to terminology, policy and guidance arrangements.
