The National Centre for Flood Research was established in 2018 at Southern Cross University bringing together experts in world-class research institutions with well-established research capability for a full interdisciplinary research approach. Research focus includes water management, health sciences, planning, hydrology, hydrogeology and hydraulics, hydrometeorology, land cover and floodplain science and policy, climate change and civil engineering, and the social sciences. All of these disciplines are highly relevant to a better, more holistic understanding of floods, their impacts and their causes.
The National Centre for Flood Research is currently conducting research to explore communication with people who live in flood-prone areas. As part of this project, they are conducting a short survey that aims to better understand how the access to and trust in information and communication sources varies based on the location and age of at-risk people. Results of this survey will help to identify effective flood information and communication tools to enable support agencies to improve their communication strategies.
The survey is anonymous and should take less than 10 minutes to complete, so please participate if you can by following this link:
Alternatively, contact Astrid Vachette at email@example.com if you would like a hard copy of the survey.
