In response to the destructive impact of Tropical Cyclone Winston, the Business Disaster Resilience Council (BDRC) was established in 2016. To understand how well the private sector helps after a disaster, the BDRC was made to improve cooperation between private businesses in Fiji, the National Disaster Management, UN Agencies, and groups that provide aid during emergencies. Its key objectives include reducing disaster risks, improving emergency preparedness, facilitating response efforts, and promoting recovery. The council has developed comprehensive toolkits for Small Medium Enterprises, focusing on business continuity after disasters, and has actively engaged with communities in Fiji through disaster risk reduction training. Membership is open to all entities involved in disaster risk management.
