NSW welcomes Royal Commission Report into national natural disaster arrangements

The Premier

The NSW Government has welcomed the Final Report of the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements, following the devastating 2019-2020 bushfire season.

The NSW Government will work closely with the Australian Government to respond to the Royal Commission’s recommendations, in a way that complements the work already underway following the NSW Government’s Bushfire Inquiry.

In August, the NSW Government accepted all 76 recommendations from the NSW Bushfire Inquiry. The implementation of a number of those recommendations has already begun including a $192 million funding package and suite of legislative changes.
