Environment
Much of the island experiences tropical weather.1 The rainy season lasts from December to April each year.2 There are disaster risk reduction and disaster management plans in place for Christmas Island, which are generally overseen by the Australian government.3 There are 30 regional and international organizations involved in order to provide funding, support, and monitoring. In 2012, Australia issued an Emergency Management Ordinance to help establish necessary management arrangement for Christmas Island with assistance from the Australian government.4 This ordinance provided a legislative basis for emergency relief efforts.5
