Minderoo Foundation's Fire and Flood Resilience initiative

Calling all land conservation, community resilience and/or community engagement NGOs

The climate crisis has intensified risk conditions for extreme weather events across the world so the Institute of Community Directors Australia (ICDA) is thrilled to support Minderoo Foundation's Fire and Flood Resilience mission to:

  1. By 2025 is to reduce the scale and impact of bushfires by being able to extinguish dangerous fires within an hour
  2. Lift Australia's 50 most vulnerable communities to be on par with Australia’s 50 most resilient communities by helping communities to access the support and resources to mitigate their disaster risk and bounce back stronger
  3. To halve hazard exposure in Australia’s 50 most fire and flood prone regions by 2025

Australian Resilience Corps needs muster partners

Are you focused on land conservation, community resilience and/ or community engagement? Can you support a national volunteer network to help communities build fire and/or flood resilience? If you, like Minderoo, are focused on how to reduce the devastation caused by fire and flood across our great land Minderoo want to hear from you.

Australian Resilience Corps (The Corps) are looking for 4-6 partners to lead musters to help prepare communities with disaster resilience. A muster is an organised on-ground group activity, involving local community and corporate volunteers to build proactive, confident, and resilient communities through focused projects.

Part of the Minderoo Foundation, The Corps along with our NGO partners are organising muster opportunities throughout Australia, focusing on communities that are vulnerable to natural disasters. They aim to connect the right help with those that need it most, with their partners.

They need more delivery partners to provide leadership, expertise, insurance, equipment, and activity for the groups of volunteers signed up to muster in a community. The benefits to the organisations we partner with are numerous including promotions, direct funding, share media opportunities and the opportunity to further support vulnerable communities.

If this opportunity sounds like something your organisation would like to participate in, you could help us reach the communities they are targeting, please complete this form and register your EOI.

The EOI will take approximately 6 minutes to complete.

The Australian Resilience Corps is driven by the Minderoo Foundation Fire and Flood Resilience Initiative, and is made possible with our network of partners, and our volunteers. Together, we aim to reduce the harm caused by fire and flood, by 2025.

By partnering with The Corps you will join a growing number of NGOs who want to assist communities to prepare for extreme weather events like fire and flood.
