Top End markets get science

CRC research was on show in Darwin recently, with researchers from the Scoping remote north Australian community resilience project featuring at the popular Palmerston Markets. As part of ABC Radio’s Emergency Expo, CRC researcher Dr Kamaljit Sangha (Charles Darwin University)  was on hand at the markets, spreading the word about natural hazards research and the work of the project. Joining Dr Sangha was CDU's Emergency and Disaster Management team.

Dr Sangha said the expo was popular, especially in the lead up to the Northern Territory’s wet season.

“We are coming up to the cyclone season so the ABC Expo offered good opportunity to raise awareness about natural hazards among the public. Our research is all about increasing resilience of local communities in the unique environment of northern Australia,” Dr Sangha said.
