Towards an Integrative Model of Disaster Recovery through Disaster Risk Reduction: A Recovery Model for New South Wales, Australia

Graham Brewer, University of Newcastle
Alice Conant, University of Newcastle

Since 2015, the widespread appearance of disaster risk reduction (DRR) concepts has increasingly
permeated governments, their bureaucracies and emergency response agencies. Top
level endorsement has led to trickle down inclusion in policy and procedures, across a wide
range of emergency-related provisions. The research reported in this letter a) constructed a
conceptual framework of DRR, and b) used this to analyse the local application of state policy
in relation to post disaster recovery, to examine the extent to which rhetoric had influenced
actions. It was concluded that DRR activities were largely absent from recovery policy and
that concepts such as prevention, mitigation and preparedness had to be made explicit within
any revision of policy for DRR to become “normal business”. A revised recovery operations
and DRR cycle was proposed for consideration in New South Wales, Australia.
