The WDRP will identify at least two evidence-based, systemic interventions underpinned by cutting-edge science and technology to help Australia become the global leader in fire and flood resilience before 2030.
This will be achieved under a “Mission Model” of program delivery aimed at solving ambitious goals to drive large scale outcomes that will have lasting systemic impact.
The model works on a problem-solving design and planning to ensure clarity of desired end-state and pathways for delivery at scale, activating multi-disciplinary teams. The Missions will work with contributors and partners with a track record of delivery and create an environment of joint responsibility for outcomes.
The evidence base for Missions will take the form of a “Resilience Blueprint”, which is under development. The Resilience Blueprint will:

“Telstra is pleased to partner with Minderoo Foundation’s Wildfire and Disaster Resilience Program on this important initiative to help strengthen Australia’s resilience, with a focus on making the greatest impact in high risk and disaster affected areas.”
“We need a better grasp of the complexities to achieve change, and the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC is excited to support Minderoo Foundation’s Wildfire and Disaster Resilience Program to ensure that the community continues to benefit from research to reduce the effects of natural hazards.”
“Our Fellowship of esteemed Australian scientists will share their expertise and collaborate with the Minderoo Foundation to help develop a new national resilience blueprint.”
“We’re pleased to partner with the Minderoo Foundation’s Wildfire and Disaster Resilience Program to work together on innovative and data-driven solutions to improve community resilience and help mitigate the impacts of natural disasters on people, communities and the infrastructure they depend on.”
“The resilience of our electricity and gas networks is a critical enabler of the community’s ability to withstand and recover from natural disasters. As we observe an increasing frequency of extreme heat and fire events impacting our energy infrastructure, AEMO is pleased to support and provide advice to the Wildfire Disaster and Resilience Program.”
