Technical Risk Assessment Advisory Committee
The Technical Risk Assessment Advisory Committee (initiated in 2004 and closed in 2010) was an independent panel of experts providing advice to government on natural hazard risk assessment and on strategies for risk management. It was made up of specialists in all areas of natural hazard and climate change, as well as authorities in key areas of risk mitigation such as building codes, insurance and land use planning.
The advice it provided was aimed at achieving national risk assessment objectives which met the requirements of the Australian, State and Territory Governments as well as local government and the community. These objectives centred on the Council of Australian Governments reports on natural disasters and on bushfires.
The Technical Risk Assessment Advisory Committee played a key role in establishing the National Risk Assessment Framework and advised the previous Australia-New Zealand Emergency Management Committee and their advisory groups and others as required on technical issues related to implementing the framework.
Geoscience Australia provided technical expertise and Secretariat functions for this Committee.
