The Western Australian and Commonwealth governments have a National Partnership Agreement (NPA) for Disaster Risk Reduction to proactively reduce the risk and limit the impact of natural hazard disasters on Australian communities and economies.
With an allocation of $12.528 million to WA over five (5) years, the NPA will deliver on the priorities, five-year outcomes and 2030 goals of the National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework (NDRRF).
The NDRRF is aimed at reducing existing disaster risk, minimising the creation of future risk and equipping decision-makers with the capabilities and information needed to reduce disaster risk and manage residual risk.
The State Emergency Management Committee (SEMC) oversees the WA Implementation Plan for the NDRRF, including the delivery of the National Disaster Risk Reduction Competitive Grants Program (NDRR).
The NDRR Competitive Grant Program is a key component of achieving the WA Implementation Plan.
Eleven (11) areas for action have been identified within the Plan to contribute to the delivery of the NDRRF priorities.
To be eligible for NDRR funding, projects must address at least one Commonwealth NDRRF priority, demonstrate one or more of the 11 action areas within the WA Implementation Plan and address at least one natural hazard.
