Helping communities increase resilience to the risks of climate change

Our research is based on hundreds of conversations (and counting) about experiences and perceptions of risk.

We work to facilitate and support community connections, including how these engagements shape the actions we take (and don't take) to prepare for disasters of all sorts.

Our goals

  1. Better understand public perceptions of risk;
  2. Reduce flood risk at the household scale, with contributions to wider flood risk reduction for the community;
  3. Build mutually beneficial relationships amongst communities, service providers, and researchers;
  4. Measure risk reduction actions taken as a result of engagements, including potential spillover effects;
  5. Support and grow community resilience;
  6. Improve how emergency services and researchers engage with communities for flood and disaster risk reduction.
