A set of priorities for national research into natural hazards in Australia has been launched by the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC.
This special event showcased our research achievements to date, with nearly 200 people from across emergency management and policy hearing two days of how the findings are being put into practice.
Planning for animals during an emergency adds another layer of complexity.
By highlighting the impact of animals on the behaviours of people in natural hazards, this research has reinforced the need to support communities to be prepared and to plan for animals.

No organisation can forgo learning. Hazard Note 34 helps agencies to ‘learn how to learn’, so they understand how to embed effective learning practices and systems into their organisation’s culture.
