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