2020 Australian Bush Fires

Vooruitgang: Pipeline/identification
Budget: € 1341941
Looptijd: 2020-01-04 - 2021-01-04


High temperatures and prolonged dry conditions have resulted in unprecedented bushfire activity across the states of New South Wales (NSW) since early November 2019, in Victoria (VIC), Western Australia (WA) and South Australia (SA) since early December 2019, and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) in January 2020. At least 34 people have died as a result of the bushfires and the impact upon air quality is estimated to have affected millions. An estimated 5,900 residential and public structures have been destroyed. Loss of wildlife is estimated to have surpassed 1.5 billion losses, along with tens of thousands of livestock. Due to prevailing drought conditions over all affected states during 2019, agricultural and horticultural sectors will be impacted well into the long-term. So far, approximately 61,000 people have been supported through the bushfire emergency response across the following areas:•Community outreach. •Psychosocial First Aid (PFA) provision and training. •Relief coordination and distribution (food, water and hygiene items). •Support to evacuation centres and services. •Emergency cash grants(800 payments made as at 23 January 2020). •Restoring Family Links (known as“Register. Find. Reunite”in Australia). •Public messaging and tools for bushfire and heatwave preparedness
