Student project

Due to a changing climate and increasing coastal population, the number of individuals vulnerable to property damage from cyclones is likely to increase. In order to mitigate the economic losses and negative physical and mental health outcomes from these events, the implementation of specific cyclone mitigation behaviours is necessary. This project aims to investigate the psychosocial factors that influence cyclone mitigation behaviours. Findings will be used to inform strategic risk communication to promote mitigation behaviour in cyclone-prone regions.
