Working together to build a resilient Australia for all.

A new era of compound natural and unnatural
disasters requires a new collaborative approach

Join the alliance. We’re stronger together.

Welcome to the Resilient Australia Alliance

The Resilient Australia Alliance (RAA) is new approach to building national resilience.

Our focus is to increase disaster risk, preparedness and resilience capabilities in every business across Australia.

Businesses are communities. They connect with employees, customers and suppliers every day. If we invest in business leaders, owners and operators we invest in community leaders too.

RAA is a social enterprise membership with an annual fee for medium and large corporate organisations, government agencies and departments. Membership is free to other key stakeholders.

Upskilling capabilities in every Australian business

The RAA will co-design programs, tools and solutions relevant to every business type, size and industry. Our model will enable all businesses and industry associations to work in collaboration with government, communities and other key stakeholders to understand risk, prepare their business operations and build an everyday culture of resilience.

We will deliver on Australia’s international obligations from the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). RAA co-designed programs, tools and solutions will benefit business and communities before, during and after natural and unnatural disasters.

A new era of compound natural and unnatural disasters requires a new collaborative approach between private and public sectors.

“The private sector is the perfect advocate for resilient thinking because of its direct relationship with consumers, customers and suppliers and can steer public demand towards risk-sensitive products and services. A new collaborative approach between governments and private enterprise based on trust will build disaster resilience communities.”

 

Margareta Wahlström
Former UN Special Representative of the Secretary General for Disaster Risk Reduction
