Building collaborative emergency management capacity in northern Australia

Source(s):  Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre (BNHCRC)

This hazard note presents how remote Indigenous communities in northern Australia are frequently affected by natural hazards but do not have the same access to services as other areas. There is a strong need to develop effective partnerships with emergency management agencies that can help Indigenous communities build emergency management capabilities. 

Through a consultative and culturally respectful process led by Charles Darwin University, this research has empowered remote Indigenous communities in northern Australia by enhancing the capability to better understand emergency management processes and procedures. Researchers explored scenario planning options to enhance preparedness, disaster response capacity and resilience. 

It presents ongoing priorities identified by communities and emergency service agencies, along with fire management tools, that will lead to more effective collaboration.
