Working together to make communities safer
The members of the Australian Business Roundtable for Disaster Resilience & Safer Communities strongly believe it is of national importance to make Australian communities safer and more resilient to natural disasters.
Australia is highly prone to natural disasters. The economic and social costs of these events are far too high for the people of our country.
Our nation’s investment in mitigation measures to improve our communities’ resilience to natural disasters is well short of what’s required to seriously tackle the issue. It is far surpassed by post-disaster recovery spending. Progress on resilience development is too slow, fragmented and reactive.
The members of the Roundtable have come together to champion the need for a more sustainable, coordinated national approach to make our communities more resilient and our people safer. It’s the only way to reduce the future economic and social costs of the inevitable natural disasters Australians will face.
