Functional Recovery Groups (FRGs)
Functional Recovery Groups (FRGs) support communities across the five functional lines of recovery: human and social; economic; environment; building; and roads and transport.
The FRGs are responsible for providing resources and supporting Local Recovery Groups (LRGs) and District Recovery Groups (DRGs) in their recovery efforts across impacted communities. The FRGs coordinate, link and facilitate recovery planning, issues management and activities at the state level across their different functional group areas.
The communication loop between LRGs, DRGs and state level FRGs is a crucial element of the recovery governance arrangements.
FRGs through their representation on the District Disaster Management Groups (DDMGs) establish a formal reporting relationship with the LRGs to ensure effective information sharing.
