AVA Submission to the National Recovery and Resilience Agency

17 Jun 2022

The National Recovery and Resilience Agency, supported by the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience, is bringing together a range of sectors and voices to embark on a design process to identify nationally significant transformational actions that will reduce disaster risk.

The Second National Action Plan has been developed and the National Recovery and Resilience Agency wants to engage broadly, gathering information and evidence to identify priority actions needed to progress the implementation of the National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework and drive the reduction of systemic disaster risk in Australia.

The AVA has submitted a response to the Discussion paper MAY 2022 for Developing the Second National Action Plan, which addresses the roles veterinarians play in disaster response, current risks that require veterinary response, risks to veterinary profession itself and what would help the veterinary profession contribute more effectively to reducing disaster risk and building resilience.
