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.
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.
Find out how QRA is working with key stakeholders including the Bureau of Meteorology, Department of Transport and Main Roads, and local governments to improve Queensland’s flood warning infrastructure to help keep our communities safe with timely weather and flood warnings and forecasts, and to reduce the cost of future floods.
Resilient infrastructure plays a critical role in supporting communities to withstand, respond to, and recover from natural disasters. Planning for resilient infrastructure has the potential to significantly reduce disaster costs.
A year round, all hazards, resilience building initiative coordinated by the QRA to help Queenslanders and Queensland communities prepare for natural disasters.
