Part of a comprehensive review of flood risk management in five mature economies, this report reveals many successes in the Australian system, including high-quality national and state guidelines and frameworks for FRM activities, climate change adaptation efforts, a commitment to building back better and high levels of insurance penetration. More work is needed, however, to minimise development in high-risk floodplains and redistribute FRM funding from response and recovery to mitigation, with more balance between fire-related hazards and flood.
