Shane Stone is the Co-ordinator General of the National Recovery & Resilience Agency (NRRA) established by the Morrison Government in the Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet in response to the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements. The new Agency was launched by Prime Minister Morrison in Townsville on 5 May 2021. The Agency incorporates the National Drought and North Queensland Flood Recovery & Response Agency (NDNQFRRA), the National Bushfire Recovery Agency (NBRA), certain responsibilities of Emergency Management Australia (EMA) including natural disaster risk reduction, preparedness functions, as well as management of specific disaster recovery programs, (formerly Department of Home Affairs) and the Rural Financial Counselling Service (RFCS) (formerly Department of Agriculture, Environment & Water). NRRA supersedes Shane Stone’s former roles as Co-ordinator General NDNQFRRA and Chairman & CEO of the North Queensland Livestock Industry Recovery Agency (NQLIRA) following the devastating monsoon and floods in January 2019. Further, on 30 March 2021, Shane Stone was also appointed to the Commonwealth Senior Advisory Group by the Morrison Government to examine the Commonwealth’s three jointly managed national parks - Booderee Kakadu and Uluru-Kata Tjuta (Ayres Rock). The role of the Senior Advisory Group is to recommend improvements to joint management arrangements and provide a clear and co-designed pathway to transition to Traditional Owners having more responsibility and control over the management of their land.
