This research is combining integrated modelling, through a dynamic decision support system, with exploratory scenarios to assist policy development for the minimisation of risk across multiple natural hazards. Through this exploration, strategic adaptation pathways are also being considered, with a focus on the trade-off between reliability and flexibility in the mitigation portfolios to ensure policies are effective in the short term, while also capable of handling alternate future conditions.
