Grant Activity:
Pyrosecurity: understanding and managing bushfires in a changing climate
Purpose:
This project aims to examine cultural and political factors that have shaped bushfire management in Australasia during the past two decades and identify how practices might better adapt to a changing world. Bushfires are a serious natural hazard with major social, economic, and environmental impacts. Social and climatic changes are altering the intensity, frequency, and consequences of bushfires, creating significant uncertainties in how we anticipate them. This project will examine how bushfire management practitioners and institutions manage diverse uncertainties, leading to new theoretical insights and strategic policy advice. Expected benefits include better prediction and management of bushfire impacts and improved education and training of bushfire practitioners.
