    Abstract

    This project is a component of the Australian Government’s National Action Plan (NAP) to build on social cohesion, harmony and security, and is funded by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). The National Action Plan consists of a number of initiatives and focuses on education, awareness-raising and capacity-building measures. In Emergency Management Australia’s case, the focus is directed at helping culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities prepare for, respond to and ensure recovery from incidents, crises and other emergencies in Australia, through specific intervention projects designed to improve the capacity of the EM sector to engage with CALD communities and become more responsive to the needs of communities.
