The National Recovery and Resilience Agency released a discussion paper to inform the development of the Second National Action Plan.
The NRRA sought feedback and comments from a range of voices and sectors to identify nationally significant transformational actions to reduce disaster risk. Responses to the discussion paper contribute to a shared understanding of the key challenges to be addressed and ensure that the Second National Action Plan is developed by all sectors, for all sectors.
The discussion paper encouraged responses from stakeholders that share experiences and insights related to the role they play and the things that would help them or their organisation contribute more effectively to reducing disaster risk and building resilience. The submission period closed in June 2022.
The discussion paper posed five discussion questions.
1. What do you understand your shared responsibility to be for reducing systemic disaster risk (for yourself, your organisation or on behalf of others) and ideally, what should collaboration look like?
2. What examples can you share about what you are doing to prevent or limit the potential severity of future disruption arising from climate and disaster risks? What is working well, and what isn’t?
3. What is enabling your efforts to reduce disaster risks? Conversely, what is impeding your efforts to reduce disaster risks and why should it be addressed in the second National Action Plan?
4. If the second National Action Plan included ~5 nationally significant strategic initiatives or actions to focus collective efforts over the next 2-5 years, what should they be? What would make the most difference nationally?
5. Anything else you would like to add?
