Resilient Australia Awards

Applications for the 2018 program open on 5 March

The Resilient Australia Awards is a nation-wide program to recognise and promote initiatives that strengthen community disaster resilience. Since 2000, the awards have showcased innovation and exemplary practice across Australia; celebrating achievements that might otherwise go unseen, and inspiring others to build greater disaster resilience in their own communities.

The awards are managed by AIDR and proudly sponsored by the Australian Government in conjunction with the states and territories.
