Abstract

The impact of natural hazards on Australian communities can be devastating. After such events, the devastation is commonly measured in terms of costs to property, businesses and infrastructure. The challenge is to better understand our communities so that a more comprehensive management of total risk can be taken. Such a task requires a multi-disciplinary approach, and Geoscience Australia is collaborating with the Bureau of Meteorology, Emergency Management Australia, Local Government Agencies and Universities to develop a better understanding of how natural hazards affect communities.
