Disaster funding review will benefit electorate, says Reid

Member for Robertson Dr Gordon Reid has claimed his electorate will benefit from a new independent review into Australia's disaster funding arrangements.

The review will ensure government investment in disaster funding is fit-for-purpose and effective in the face of increasingly frequent and more severe natural disasters, he said.

The Review will be led by Mr Andrew Colvin, who led the National Bushfire Recovery Agency from January 2020 to May 2021.

Dr Reid said the review would consider how government investment in disaster risk reduction, preparedness, response, recovery and resilience can better support a national system.

However, he did not say how it would be reflected on the Peninsula or how it would affect emergency planning under the Council's current draft Floodplain Risk Management Plan for the Peninsula.

He said there would be an opportunity for the Council, community groups, charities and businesses to take part in the review.

"We know communities are best placed to tell us what is and isn't working within the disaster funding system," Dr Reid said.

A final report is expected to be provided to Government in April 2024.
