Optimizing Post-Disaster Recovery Interventions in Australia
Ulubasoglu. M. Optimizing Post-Disaster Recovery Interventions in Australia. Funding Body: The Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre, Australian Federal Government. Funding Amount: $560,000. Project Period: 2017-2020.
The primary objective of this research project is to estimate the sector-disaggregated economic effects of the QLD Floods 2010-11, the Black Saturday Bushfires 2009, and Cyclone Oswald 2013 to support the decision-making process in the design of post-disaster recovery interventions.
Research End Users
The project engages several end-users from various layers in the Australian Federal and State Governments, and benefits from their feedback with the purpose of providing a research output that could be utilised in informed decision-making. The project end-users include representatives from Emergency Management Australia within the Attorney General's Department, Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning, Victoria, and Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources, South Australia.
Pre-Disaster Multi-Hazard Damage and Economic Loss Estimation Model
Ulubasoglu, M. and Rajabifard, A. Pre-Disaster Multi-Hazard Damage and Economic Loss Estimation Model. Funding Body: The Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre, Australian Federal Government. Funding Amount: $525,000. Project Period: 2014-2016.
The emergency response system in Australia has proven to be effective in saving lives but the mitigation and preparedness phases in disaster risk reduction appear to be less successful in minimising the adverse economic impacts of natural disasters. This project investigates, at the national level, the economic impact of natural disasters on sectoral growth of the Australian economy.
