Response, recovery and adaptation in flood-affected communities in Queensland and Victoria

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This research aims to identify the factors that inhibit and enable adaptation strategies within flood-affected communities. To achieve this, a mixed methods survey was carried out in three case study locations of Brisbane and Emerald in Queensland, and in Donald, Victoria. Resident experiences of the flooding in terms of response and recovery were also examined in order to understand the broader story from a local perspective.
