2017 Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie
The State Recovery Plan 2017-19: Operation Queensland Recovery outlines the guiding principles that define the 2017 Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie recovery success, Queensland’s framework for recovery, and the enduring partnerships for locally-led recovery to reconnect and rebuild more resilient communities. Eight local governments developed event specific local recovery plans following STC Debbie.
The Plan aligns with the Queensland Recovery Plan and builds on existing recovery approaches in recognising that communities are best placed to develop and implement local plans that meet their own recovery needs. It outlines a clear commitment that the Queensland Government will work with local governments and communities to ensure impacted people, communities and businesses get the resources and support they need, when they need it.
