Natural Disaster Resilience Program

Building Resilience in the North Burnett project aims to build and enhance the natural disaster resilience of agricultural North Burnett regional communities.  This is a project jointly funded by the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments under the Natural Disaster Resilience Program (NDRP). This funding is very timely for the region following seven declared natural flooding disasters and two drought declarations in the past eight years.
