National Emergency Management Ministers' Meeting (NEMMM)

On 13 November 2020, the National Cabinet agreed to the establishment of the National Emergency Management Ministers’ Meeting.

The National Emergency Management Ministers’ Meeting (NEMMM) facilitates emergency management portfolio ministers from their respective jurisdictions to work collaboratively to drive national cooperation and consistency on enduring strategic issues in emergency/disaster management and resilience.

The NEMMM will also address emerging issues requiring cross-border collaboration and perform policy and standard setting functions. This may include cross-portfolio issues, such as building, planning, land management, infrastructure, communications, data and digital, health, science, research, environment and education.

The NEMMM reports to Annually National Cabinet.

It is supported by the Australia-New Zealand Emergency Management Committee (ANZEMC), the peak government senior executive committee responsible for emergency management.
