This project will examine the technical and institutional impediments constraining optimal BNH preparation, response and recovery efforts in northern Australia. The research will use the longitudinal scenario planning project under program B1 “Building Community Resilience in Northern Australia” and access to key decision makers to generate a clear understanding of the impediments. It is understood that the infrastructure, geography and demography of the region make BNH management difficult and expensive, and these issues will be considered in depth in other projects, this project will however consider issues with human capital and communications their impacts. Focus questions include “How do we get people distributed over a wide area from different organizations to work well together in difficult circumstances?” and “If we can’t train together, and rarely communicate how can we expect to work as a team?”. Through collaboration with other projects, models to build more effective capacity in agencies and their decision makers will be proposed and trialled through the scenario planning process. The project will also have input into the training project.
