The Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) has invited councils to partner with the Resilience Canopy, a new program that is designed to enable communities across Australia to be adaptable and disaster-ready. 

The program activates communities to lead their own resilience-building actions and plan through a six-step engagement process and resilience framework. It also helps them connect with funding and partners to deliver their goals.

Local councils can participate in the Resilience Canopy Practitioner Training, helping staff and community leaders learn how to apply the six-step process. Free training is available for staff and community leaders in selected local government areas across Australia.

Activation grants are available this year for communities to kick-start their resilience building. Canopy-trained practitioners can apply for grants on behalf of their communities, once they have completed the training.

The Resilience Canopy is a not-for-profit organisation, powered by ResilientCo, Resilient Cities Catalyst and with foundational funding from Minderoo Foundation.
