The Queensland Reconstruction Authority (QRA) is the state’s lead agency responsible for disaster recovery and resilience policy. Building resilience is a key priority to ensure Queenslanders are better prepared for disaster, and better equipped to bounce back following a disaster.
The Queensland Strategy for Disaster Resilience 2022-27 (QSDR) promotes a systems approach to resilience that connects with a range of agencies and sectors to deliver improved outcomes for Queensland.
By 2022, every region across Queensland will be part of a locally-led and regionally-coordinated blueprint to strengthen disaster resilience. Project updates are available for the 14 Queensland regions.
The Queensland Government is committed to strengthening disaster resilience so our communities are better equipped to deal with the increasing prevalence of natural disasters. Learn about our current and completed commitments under the United Nations Sendai Framework.
