However important questions are raised. How would progress towards the development of resilient communities be assessed? What are the specific priorities needed to improve resilience for various communities? How should investments to develop disaster resilience be evaluated and reported? This project will develop an Australian Natural Disaster Resilience Index as a tool for assessing, evaluating and reporting resilience to natural hazards in Australia.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||5th International Conference on Building Resilience, Newcastle, Australia, 15th - 17th July, 2015||Conference Details:||5th International Conference on Building Resilience, Newcastle, Australia, 15th - 17th July, 2015||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Building Resilience, p. 496-1-496-13||Publisher:||University of Newcastle||Place of Publication:||Newcastle, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||160403 Social and Cultural Geography||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 767
