Natural Hazard Impacts Project
The Natural Hazard Impacts Project aims to define the natural hazard risk in Australia and the region from a range of natural hazards including earthquake, tsunami, landslide, storm surge inundation, volcanic eruptions and flood. This activity provides risk assessment models, methods and tools to support a range of risk mitigation options including emergency response, recovery and preparedness, disaster risk reduction, building regulation, land-use planning and insurance. This Project also manages, and is a key provider of, Geoscience Australia’s technical expertise and advice to the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID). Development of natural hazard risk information is the key focus of support to AusAID, in line with the AusAID’s Disaster Risk Reduction policy.
