Dr Prananda Navitas

Dr Prananda Navitas’ research focused on the integration of hazard mitigation and land use planning. His research examined forms of knowledge used in decisions affecting policy and planning for urban development in south east Queensland. It assessed how current building standards are integrated into state and local government planning, and their effectiveness in mitigating bushfires. Prananda’s research also developed an integrated framework for action to improve land use planning, development standards and the built environment decision making system to better manage risk and improve community disaster resilience.

Prananda now lectures in urban and regional planning at the Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology in Indonesia. 

Student project

Bushfire mitigation and management are likely to become more significant with climate change increasingly threatening and the continued spread of urban and suburban growth in Australia. Unlike other natural hazards, bushfires can be foreseen, prevented and combated to a certain degree to minimise their risk and impact. Land use planning is widely acknowledged as an important means of reducing the community's vulnerability to natural hazards. Land use policies and programs offer a diverse set of strategies for management of bushfire hazard risk.
