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.
