About

The Natural Hazards Research Forum is the first forum from Natural Hazards Research Australia, bringing together people from research, government, industry and community to share knowledge about natural hazards research. 

In acknowledgement of the UN International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction on 13 October, come and contribute to the current state and future of natural hazards research in Australia – what it is, what’s being done now, how it can be used, what should be done in future.

The program also includes a formal launch of Natural Hazards Research Australia and its research programs, the launch of our Reconciliation Action Plan, and the Disaster Challenge Final, where the three finalist teams will present their solutions to the wicked problem of ‘engaging a transient sector of the community with disaster preparation information’.

Program

The program include engagement, discussion, knowledge sharing and road-mapping of natural hazards research from the Centre and other natural hazard research and operational experts.

Sessions will cover disaster risk reduction and resilience, learning from recent disasters (including the 2022 eastern Australia floods and Black Summer), evidence-informed policy and strategy, community resilience, healthy landscapes, situational awareness, operational response and innovation, workforces of the future and much more.

The program also includes a formal launch of Natural Hazards Research Australia and its research programs, the launch of our Reconciliation Action Plan, and the Disaster Challenge Final, where the three finalist teams will present their solutions to the wicked problem of ‘engaging a transient sector of the community with disaster preparation information’.
