The Minderoo Foundation Wildfire and Disaster Resilience Program will deliver a collaboration model and co-contribution with government, industry and academia, aligned to the Australian National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework and the UN’s Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.
The program will seek to draw on the best expertise domestically and internationally.

Mission-Level Technology Partners:
These partners will deliver technical outcomes towards a Mission.
Working Together to Lift National Resilience:

“IUCN looks forward to joining forces with Minderoo Foundation as it launches the Wildfire and Disaster Resilience Program, which will systemically address risks and make Australia’s landscapes and communities ever more resilient.”
“Working together we can meet even the gravest challenges and develop the long-term strategies needed to rebuild and thrive into the future.”
“Whether it’s reducing the impact of fires through new preparedness measures, improving the effectiveness of emergency response or ensuring communities are truly resilient to any emergency, there is so much more we can all do together.”
“As evidenced last summer, building deeper resilience will require commitment and collaboration from across our country and community, and we are pleased to contribute to and learn from this important work.”
“Now is the time to think outside the box and work together to build resilience for all Australians.”
