Recovery Partners Network

The Recovery Partners Network (RPN) brings together non-government and community organisations and Tasmanian Government agencies to build relationships for collaborative and coordinated recovery efforts during and after emergencies.

The RPN meet at an annual forum to share learnings from previous recovery efforts and understand what work is being done going forward in the Tasmanian disaster recovery space in order to improve outcomes for Tasmanian communities.

The Recovery Partners Network (RPN) was formed in 2017. It is facilitated by the Office of Security and Emergency Management. If you are an organisation that works in disaster recovery, and would like to join the RPN, please contact

Working Together in Recovery: a practical guide for the not-for-profit and public sectors

Collaboration is critical for successful recovery efforts. The Working Together in Recovery guide provides a valuable resource for organisations involved in recovery.

Based on insights provided by people involved in the 2016 floods, this practical and simple guide provides advice for the not-for-profit and public sectors on how to enhance collaboration during the recovery phase of a disaster in Tasmania. Dr Steve Curnin, Director of the Disaster Resilience Research Group at the University of Tasmania developed the guide as part of a research project funded by the Tasmanian State Emergency Management Program.
