Abstract This paper considers problems that emerged with both the organisation of firefighting efforts during the bushfires that ravagad northeast Victoria during January and February 2003, and the delivery of recovery assistance since those fires, It examines these issues under the aspect of the theoretical construct variously termad 'new governance', 'participatory governance' (Edwards 2002) or 'integrated governance' (Success Works /IPAA 2002).' The investigation reveals the usefulness of this concept for analysing the problems and potentialities of partnership approaches to emergency service delivery and post-emergency recovery, For the sake of simplicity the analysis is focused on the experience of two shires in particular, Indigo and Towong, although many of the issues reportad for these shires also apply to Gippsland as a whole.
