The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) is Australia’s National Disaster Management Organisation.

NEMA manages the Australian Government Disaster Response Plan under which states and territories may seek Australian Government assistance when the scale of an emergency or disaster exceeds or exhausts the jurisdiction’s response capacity and capabilities, or where resources cannot be mobilised in sufficient time.

NEMA delivers programs, policies and services that strengthen Australia's national security and emergency management capability.
