Operation Queenslander: ten ideas for Australian Defence Force support to disaster relief operations

30 Dec 2011

This article articulates ten ideas for ADF support to disaster relief operations.

These ideas originate from the development of the strategic, operational and tactical plans for Operation QUEENSLANDER in order to ensure that the ADF can continue to fulfil Defence White Paper 2009 requirements. These ideas are: intelligence preparation in disaster relief operations; the effectiveness of the Joint Military Appreciation Process; the utility of design in complex disasters; beyond whole of government – a comprehensive approach to disaster relief; maintaining momentum– establishing the campaign sequel; domestic disasters: templates and tensions; Defence as a supporting agency; whole of government planning, writing and language; the value of military education and training; future operations: workers, thinkers and leaders.
