Response to Major Flooding Across New South Wales in 2022

By The Australia Project

Findings:
• SES and Resilience NSW failed as lead agencies
• SES was hindered by centralisation and shortage of volunteers
• SES issued out-of-date, inaccurate and confusing messages
• Community members had no other option but to ignore government advice and save lives
• Grants process was insensitive and compounded trauma
• NSW Government agencies lacked coordination, created confusion
• Demarcation disputes between NSW Government agencies slowed the roll-out of support
• NSW Government failed to adequately prepare effective temporary and long-term housing solutions

Recommendations:
• Consider restructure of SES to harness local knowledge, coordinate more closely with other rescue agencies, increase salaried staff and drive volunteer recruitment
• Consider abolishing Resilience NSW
• Appoint senior police officer to lead recovery efforts
• Prioritise the rebuild of Cabbage Tree Island
• Significantly increase investment in flood mitigation and preparation
