The National Strategy for Disaster Resilience is a high level strategic document that was developed by the federal government and agreed by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in 2011. This document reflects the agreed national position on the responsibility of all levels of government, business, the non-government sector and individuals.  The document emphasises the shared responsibility we all have to improve disaster resilience.  This is the document that provides the context and direction for all disaster resilience work across Australia, at least from the perspective of governments.
