Central NSW Joint Organisation have secured $647K for their member Councils in Central NSW for the Disaster Risk Reduction Fund.
media release 16 March 2023
The Disaster Risk Reduction Fund has three funding streams and offers $52 million in total across NSW to build resilience and help reduce, mitigate, and manage the risks of future disasters.
These projects are undertaking strategic planning work that will integrate data and insights from regional risk assessments and climate projections at the regional scale, building on the previous JO experience while considering place-based approaches.
The objective of these initiatives is to proactively reduce risk and limit the impact of disasters associated with natural hazards, recognising that taking action to address the causes of disaster risk will strengthen resilience and enable communities to withstand, adapt and continue to thrive in a changing environment.
