Australia’s research centre for natural hazards resilience and disaster risk reduction

This is an interim website for Natural Hazards Research Australia in its early establishment phase. It will be updated regularly with information on the development of the research program, partner meetings and other activities.

On 1 July 2021, the Australian Government announced the establishment of a new natural hazards and disaster research centre.

Natural Hazards Research Australia is working closely with the Australian Government to develop a new strategic research agenda for Australia along with its partners at the CSIRO, AFAC, state-based emergency service agencies, universities and industry partners.

Natural Hazards Research Australia is now in its establishment phase involving an extensive series of sector-wide workshops and meetings with potential end-user and research partners to define and develop a long-term research program.
