The Australian Disaster Resilience Index: a summary

Source(s):  Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre (BNHCRC)
University of New England (UNE)

The Australian Disaster Resilience Index measures resilience through a combination of social, economic, natural environment, built environment, governance and geographical factors, providing spatial outputs (maps) that identify the mosaic of disaster resilience, and the factors that contribute to this resilience, across Australia. The Index is intended to be used alongside existing information, including:

  • natural hazard risk maps to examine the intersection between prevailing natural hazard exposure and risk, and the capacities for resilience.
  • changes to external drivers and linkages, including broad demographic and economic trends, regional development, and environmental changes.
