Important flood documents released

Flooding is a perennial issue in Queensland, with the state experiencing more than 70 flooding events since 2011.

That’s why we’re thrilled to release two important documents today that will help to reduce the risk of future flooding impacts on Queensland communities.

The first document, the Queensland Flood Risk Management Framework, is the Queensland Government’s plan for the strategic management of flood risk throughout the state. It details the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders involved in flood risk management, giving greater clarity to support decision-makers, particularly local governments.

The second document, an updated version of the Queensland Strategic Flood Warning Infrastructure Plan, outlines the context, issues and opportunities to improve flood warnings in Queensland. It provides a governance structure for the state’s flood warning network and includes measures to improve the provision of flood forecasts and warnings to Queensland communities and emergency services.
