Following major natural hazard events, Risk Frontiers routinely undertakes research to better understand impacts and community behaviour. 

This project is being completed with the support of the CRC's funding for quick response. It investigates the immediate impacts of the March 2021 NSW floods. 

In regards to the recent floods, the research team will aim to complete the following:

  • develop an appreciation of the extent of impacts
  • develop an understanding of community issues during and after floods
  • develop an understanding of building vulnerability.

The research team will collect non-perishable data including photos of building damage, mapping and geospatial analysis of building damage, and community experiences. Data will be compared with previous Risk Frontiers flood damage building surveys.
