Resilience Taskforce

To build resilience, we need to share influence and responsibility across the region. A community-driven Goulburn Murray Resilience Taskforce will act as custodians of the Resilience Strategy and coordinate our efforts to increase resilience.

The Taskforce will be responsible for embedding resilience principles into governance structures and processes, and for catalysing, testing and scaling innovations up and out. It will monitor unintended systemic consequences and risks, and progress of the system towards a desired future.

The Regional Resilience Taskforce will not be a new stand alone structure, it will be established under the three Regional Partnerships who cover the Goulburn Murray region. The Taskforce will provide a cross-cutting structure that complements their work and integrates and addresses the particular issues needed to deliver this regional resilience strategy.
