  • identify and promote the adoption of good practice 
  • build interoperability between jurisdictions, agencies, businesses, and community leaders by outlining common language and coordinated, nationally agreed principles  
  • align national disaster risk reduction and resilience strategy and policy by informing and assisting jurisdictions, agencies and other organisations and individuals in the implementation and adoption of these arrangements.
