The National Bushfire Recovery Agency collaborates with all levels of government, industry experts, business and charity sectors.

Strong consultation and collaboration with key stakeholders and impacted communities is critical to successful and enduring recovery from the 2019-20 bushfires.

The National Bushfire Recovery Agency regularly engages with key stakeholders to integrate recovery and rebuilding activities. We work directly with communities, listening to locals and enabling local solutions to local issues. For information on community visits we have conducted to date, see Community Visits.

Stakeholder engagement

The National Bushfire Recovery Agency has established a number of bushfire recovery forums to:

  • consult with communities, understand their needs and communicate back to government; and
  • coordinate effort across governments, businesses, and not-for-profits to harmonise recovery and rebuild activities.
