NSW Reconstruction Authority

Disasters caused by natural hazards are becoming more frequent and more severe as we deal with the effects of population growth and climate change in NSW.

Who we are

The NSW Reconstruction Authority (RA) was established to proactively reduce the impact of future disasters across NSW and to help communities recover from them faster.

We will complete critical planning and preparation with communities, businesses and all levels of government to reduce the impact natural disasters have on our lives.

When disasters occur, our staff will work closely with emergency services and community leaders to understand what local communities will need to recover. Once the immediate threat has eased, we will lead recovery efforts in collaboration with community leaders and other recovery partners.
