Published: 30 Oct 2020

Released by: The Premier

The NSW Government has welcomed the Final Report of the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements, following the devastating 2019-2020 bushfire season.

The NSW Government will work closely with the Australian Government to respond to the Royal Commission’s recommendations, in a way that complements the work already underway following the NSW Government’s Bushfire Inquiry.

In August, the NSW Government accepted all 76 recommendations from the NSW Bushfire Inquiry. The implementation of a number of those recommendations has already begun including a $192 million funding package and suite of legislative changes.
