In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Commodore
(Ret’d) Vince Di Pietro joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss
Australia’s national resilience, examining key findings from the
report, Australia – A
complacent nation: Our reactions are too little, too late, too
short-sighted, published by the Institute for Integrated
Economic Resilience’s National Resilience Project.
The podcast begins by analysing Australia’s military and emergency first response capabilities to natural disasters, and how Di Pietro used multidimensional insights from recent natural disasters to compile his working group’s component of the report. To view the report, click here.
The pair then analyse the evolution of the term national resilience which has become widely used among Australia’s key decision makers, and the uptick in ADF domestic response operations.
The podcast wraps up by analysing policy responses to this changing field, and outlines how local communities must be empowered to engage with emergency procedures.
