Natural Disaster Resilience Program

|

The Natural Disaster Resilience Program (NDRP) was formed in 2009, under a National Partnership Agreement for Natural Disaster Resilience. The NDRP is a grant funding program that is equally funded by the Commonwealth and Northern Territory Government’s. The NDRP encourages the Government to work together with volunteers, the private sector, and non-government organisations, in an effort to enhance Territory communities to be more resilient to natural disasters.

The NDRP will deliver grant funding to successful projects that focus on delivering specific outputs, as outlined in the National Partnership Agreement for Natural Disaster Resilience, which will be achieved by:

  1. Publishing a new, revised or updated State-wide risk assessment by 30 June 2017 as agreed by the Standing Council on Police and Emergency Management (now the Law Crime and Community Safety Council);
  2. Implementing a program of natural disaster resilience activities to address priorities identified in State-wide and other relevant risk assessments and consistent with the NSDR; and
  3. Supports emergency management volunteers consistent with the National Emergency Management Volunteer Action Plan 2012 PDF (762.4 KB).

The National Partnership Agreement (and the NDRP) facilitates the achievement of one outcome: strengthening community resilience to natural disasters consistent with State risk profiles and the priority outcomes of the NSDR, in the areas of:

  1. Leading change and coordinating effort,
  2. Understanding risk,
  3. Communicating with and educating people about risks,
  4. Partnering with those who effect change,
  5. Empowering individuals and communities to exercise choice and take responsibility,
  6. Reducing risks in the build environment, and
  7. Supporting capabilities for disaster resilience.
