Strategic Planning for Recovery
Director's Guideline for Civil Defence Emergency Management Groups [DGL 20/17]
Strategic planning for recovery focuses on determining what CDEM Groups, and each member of the CDEM Group (i.e. local authorities), need to do to ensure their communities are well-placed and supported to recover from emergencies.
This Director's Guideline provides guidance to CDEM Groups on how they can go about this process, addressing the specific hazards and risks set out in their CDEM Group plan, as well as considering the consequences these hazards and risks may have on communities.
It supports the implementation of the amendment in the Civil Defence Emergency Management Act 2002 (the Act) that requires CDEM Group plans to provide for strategic planning for recovery from hazards and risks in the CDEM Group area from 1 June 2018.
In addition to the Director's Guideline, an FAQ Factsheet relating to strategic planning for recovery is available.
