The purpose of this report is to develop institutional maps of risk ownership in the Australian context that will provide an insight into the current balance of ownership delegations. These maps address risk ownership relating to the strategic management of natural hazard risk for planning, preparedness and recovery (PPR). They do not cover the response component of natural hazard risk management (see Figure 1), which is largely tactical and command and control-based, rather than strategic.
Strategic management includes mitigation incorporated into planning and preparation designed to reduce the impacts of natural hazard risks. Resilience is also included as a key contributor to recovery and is seen as any set of actions that do not alter the risk itself, instead influencing exposure, sensitivity and vulnerability.
