We are using data and modelling tools to inform emergency management processes, save lives and reduce the financial burden of disasters on the global economy.
The frequency of natural disasters is increasing
Natural disasters have increased in severity and frequency in recent years. In 2010 alone, 385 natural disasters killed over 297,000 people worldwide, impacted 217 million human lives and cost the global economy US$123.9 billion.
In addition to the recognised effects of climate change in Australia, such as increasing frequency and severity of storms, intense rainfall, extended drought and heatwaves, our expanding population is residing in areas progressively more prone to natural disasters and unpredictable weather events.
Informed decision making saves lives
To save lives and make our communities safer, stronger and more resilient, we need to sustain and strengthen our disaster management efforts and better prepare for emergency situations.
Our team includes specialists in 3D simulation modelling and visualisation, geospatial sciences, environmental, physical, economic and social sciences, social media monitoring and big data mining and analytics.
