The Australian government established the National Resilience Taskforce in 2018 to continue the conversation that began with the National Strategy for Disaster Resilience (2011).  The key message from the Taskforce is that risk and vulnerability are increasing, complex, and have cascading effects, both over time and across sectors of our lives.  The Taskforce have produced the National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework, and Profiling Australia’s Vulnerability: The interconnected causes and cascading effects of systemic disaster risk.  These documents contain the most current understanding of disaster risk and vulnerability in Australia, and are available on the AIDR hosted Knowledge Hub.
