This project will identify the factors that inhibit and enable adaptation strategies within communities by explore issues of underlying vulnerability and constraints to recovery as well as adaptation and risk reduction strategies. It will focus on case study sites in Emerald, Qld, suburbs of Brisbane, and Donald in Victoria, all of which suffered severe loss from flooding in the summer of 2010-11.
