Expressions of Interest for a project developing a national framework for risk prevention programs is reopening.
The Evaluation and monitoring for impact: developing a framework for risk prevention programs project uses contrasting case studies to develop a framework which can be used by practitioners to understand the efficacy of their programs.
The successful team will address all three work packages as part of their EOI submission.
Work package 1 will evaluate the impact of the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services’ Fight Fire Fascination program, which aims to educate children by supporting parents and educators about fire safety through outreach efforts.
Work package 2 involves piloting and evaluating a novel program that delivers targeting disaster preparedness videos through Wi-Fi captive portals. This innovative approach, developed out of the 2022 Disaster Challenge winning concept, aims to provide tourists and tourism workers, who are traditionally harder to reach, with essential information on how to prepare for disasters in their areas.
Work package 3 uses the two contrasting case studies from work packages 1 and 2, and a literature review, to create a recommended approach for monitoring and evaluating similar risk prevention programs across different regions. The research team will share their recommendations with other agencies running risk prevention programs and create a training framework for implementing effective monitoring and evaluation practices.
An online briefing has already taken place and can be viewed here.
EOI submissions are due by 5pm AEDT, Thursday 7 December 2023.
