The first year of the MAiD project comprised an extensive scoping phase. We identified the challenges and needs of responders and stakeholders, we reviewed plans, policies, and initiatives, and identified a number of priority areas with our project end-users and other stakeholders.
The third study is developing human-animal risk mapping in bushfire prone areas in Tasmania; combining animal ownership distributions and owners’ behavioural intentions for themselves and their animals. This is a multi-stakeholder study intended to assist planning and resource allocation decision-making for emergency services, primary industries, local councils, and police. If the methodology is successful it should be applicable to all hazards.
