Miles Crawford Research Leader

This project is researching the interface between risk and emergency management to understand how risk informs government emergency management policies and procedures. It is using tsunami risk scenarios originating from an earthquake along the length of the Hikurangi Subduction (off New Zealand’s North Island) to research the way risk is understood, communicated, believed, and used, as well as what existing factors limit tsunami risk awareness and understanding. 

Watch Miles draw on how his research can inform public policy to protect the population from tsunami’s.
