Australian Disaster Recovery Framework
The Australian Disaster Recovery Framework has been established to support all governments and recovery partners in their respective and collective recovery efforts. The Framework provides a common understanding of Australia’s approach to Disaster Recovery. It provides general guidance on recovery for planners and practitioners, describes mechanisms for coordination and collaboration between recovery stakeholders, including in events of nationally significant harm, and provides links to legislation, arrangements, and practice for recovery in the Australian context.
Each state and territory in Australia have their own disaster recovery policies, often large-scale disasters happen across states at the same time. The ADRF provides a common understanding of the approach to disaster recovery.
The ADRF is broken into three key areas:
1. Framework purpose and essential context
2. Recovery governance
3. Recovery doctrine and policy
The ADRF is reviewed periodically to ensure arrangements are updated as required.
