Introduction: Federal and state governments are committed to achieving better community safety and disaster resilience. It requires coordination and collaboration amongst multiple stakeholders in developing capability to predict, respond and recover from disastrous events including natural hazards and bio-security risks. Disaster response and recovery is implemented through multiple projects but use of traditional project management has been criticized as too time consuming and inflexible. This research project is the first phase in an investigation of the use of innovative, collaborative, context sensitive and systemic project management approaches to support improved community disaster response and recovery capability.
