ECONOMIC & SOCIAL RESILIENCE
NatCORR will upskill outdoor professional workers with new research, technology, capabilities, and networks to work safely outdoors.
All Australians who visit and enjoy our natural bushlands, parks and reserves for school camps, holidays, recreational sports and activities, relaxation, well-being, and adventurous expeditions will benefit. NSW State government reports over 60 million visits to National Parks in Australia annually (2018). The figure incorporating State Parks and Reserves would be much higher. Each visit presents risks which the establishment and ongoing operation of NatCORR will mitigate.
It is well evidenced in research that time in the natural environment enhances health and well-being. This project helps retain safe access to the bush in the face of increasing disaster risks, maintaining a capacity to draw on the benefits of outdoor activities, education and recreation.
NatCORR will develop activities and programs to support the industry in furthering understanding, skills, knowledge, practice standards, problem-solving and collaborative response mechanisms to adapt professional practice across the outdoors sector in Australia.
The activities of NatCORR will include: research projects, data and information collation and analysis, professional development and training programs, problem-solving forums, peer risk and incident reviews and practice evaluations, and an international symposium for sharing of knowledge and practice.
Outlining the steps as we lead through the path to a safer outdoors for Australians and visitors.
Join us in making outdoor adventures in Australia safer in the face of an ever changing climate.
