an Australian Government initiative to improve Australia’s effectiveness in civil-military-police collaboration for conflict & disaster management overseas
The Australian Civil-Military Centre is a whole-of-government initiative to improve Australia’s effectiveness in civil-military collaboration for conflict and disaster management overseas. The Centre was officially opened by the Prime Minister, the Hon Kevin Rudd MP, on 27 November 2008. The Centre engages with, and supports, government departments and agencies, non-government organisations and international partners, including the United Nations, on civil-military issues to achieve focused outcomes for the region and globally. We support best practice approaches to civil-military engagement by those involved in the strategic planning and delivery of conflict and disaster management activities. The Centre is staffed by officials of relevant Australian Government departments and agencies. It is managed by the Defence Organisation. The Executive Director reports directly to the Secretary of the Department of Defence and the Chief of the Defence Force. Portfolio responsibility resides with the Minister for Defence, through the Parliamentary Secretary for Defence Support.

12 months in the planning and preparation, four days in the execution, the 8th International Lessons Learned Conference is finally over. A big thank you to all who attended and participated. bring on the 9th ILLC.
As the opening ceremony of the 8th International Lessons Learned Conference draws near, it is time to start thinking about how the international lessons learned community will continue to develop. At this year’s ILLC, we will be running a session to explore options for continuing this development, including asking which countries might consider hosting the conference in 2013 and in 2014. If you are unable to join us at the conference, but would like to volunteer to host the conference next year or the year after, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The ACMC delivers a unique capability to government and civil-society partners.
Our success is measured by how well Australia mobilises its national efforts to promote disaster resilience, peace, security and stability overseas in coordination with friends and neighbours.
