30 Aug Building Queensland’s flood resilience
Posted at 13:28h in 0 Comments
Date: Wednesday, 20 September
The Queensland Reconstruction Authority (QRA) is responsible for coordinating disaster recovery, resilience and mitigation policy in Queensland.
As the most flood prone state in Australia, the QRA is focussed on developing whole-of-government flood risk management and resilience policy for Queensland. The Queensland Flood Resilience Program has been established to deliver on this by introducing a catchment approach to flood risk reduction in Queensland.
International examples demonstrate the wide reaching benefits of a catchment approach. However, Queensland’s vast landscape presents a unique set of challenges including widely dispersed communities and supporting infrastructure.
The International River Symposium presents an exciting opportunity for us to collaborate with experts from around the world. We invite you to be part of the conversation as we forge a new path for flood risk reduction in Queensland.
