Exposure in disaster risk reduction describes “what is at risk”; including people, buildings, infrastructure, businesses, hazardous substances and primary industries. Exposure information comprises the details needed to support situational awareness at all levels of governance and in various phases of disaster management.
This project is addressing the data and knowledge gaps and requirements for disaster resilience, resource assessment, emergency management, risk mitigation policy and planning.
The severity of a disaster depends on how much impact it has on exposure. The scale of impact in turn depends on the decisions made as a part of disaster mitigation. Therefore, exposure information is a fundamental requirement for decision making in disaster mitigation.
This project is identifying the fundamental data requirements and modelling framework to derive exposure information to enable a better understanding of the vulnerability of people, buildings and infrastructure.
The project is a significant step towards developing national exposure information capabilities in Australia. The framework will support impact assessments on people, economy, infrastructure and the environment caused by bushfires, floods, cyclones and earthquakes.
The project has reviewed current exposure information provision capabilities to identify key issues, needs, gaps, overlaps and deficiencies. An online survey was conducted and a stakeholder engagement workshop was held to identify future information needs and to understand the trends by aligning with broader framework objectives of the National Emergency Risk Assessment Guidelines.

Exposure is referred to as the elements at risk within a given area that have been, or could be, subject to the impact of natural hazards.
Ready access to information improves business resilience. The same type of information can be used to identify business vulnerability and to perform an economic impact assessment in the event of a natural disaster. This framework identifies the types and sources of information to perform economic analysis. As an outcome, it equally identifies the gaps in the existing datasets.
This project will identify the data requirements and modelling framework to derive exposure information to enable a better understanding of the vulnerability of people, buildings and infrastructure.
