Research Advisory Forum - Hobart 2016
Hobart was a major attraction for researchers, students and agency staff with more than 130 people attending our Research Advisory Forum (RAF).
The RAF was held on 11–12 May 2016, at the Hobart Function and Convention Centre, right on the wharf in the city, and was opened by the Deputy Secretary of the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service, Peter Mooney. The first day coincided with Wear Orange Wednesday, with many attendees dressing in organge in support of the SES.
This RAF focused on the Resilience and Policy themes of the research program.
- Governance and institutional knowledge
- Economics, policy and decision-making
- Scenarios and loss analysis
- Communications and warning
- Understanding and measuring social resilience
- Sustainable volunteering
- Emergency management capability
All the presentations from the RAF are available below.
Coastal risks arise from a combination of hazards, community exposure and vulnerability. Often deterministic and stochastic assumptions are used to describe changing hazards over multidecadal time horizons. This can guide impact analysis and the selection of adaptation policies.
