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

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

The project team were deployed to the NSW Mid North Coast region to observe and report on significant flooding in the area. In addition to measuring flood depths and recording noteworthy damages to belongings and infrastructure, the team spoke with residents, business owners and rescue personnel. Discussions covered evacuation, emergency response and communication, community resilience, and the insurability of their homes.
