CRC science in key journal

Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC science is a feature of the April edition of the Australian Journal of Emergency Management, released this week.

Research into how Australian children are involved in bushfire preparations around the home is being applied to disaster preparedness in the slum communities of Bangladesh, while case studies on how this research is being used in New South Wales, as well as how science is enhancing emergency warnings, are also featured.

There are also three detailed papers by CRC researchers, covering measuring resilience with the Australian Natural Disaster Resilience Index, enriching volunteer leadership and youth misuse of fire.

You can access the entire edition online for free. To receive printed copies of AJEM, subscribe to future print issues through the AJEM website (ajem.infoservices.com.au).
