The Department performs a significant role in helping build Australia’s resilience to natural disasters and seeking to better understand the types of risks the Australian community face. In doing so, the Department also recognises that one of the most significant challenges facing Australia in emergency management is its ability to prepare for, respond to and recover from severe to catastrophic disasters. Consequently, the Department constantly strives to explore through leadership, education, training and professional development, creative and innovative ways of improving the nation’s capability in this area. The Department is committed to ensuring that this vital work continues into the future.
