Understanding the Black Summer bushfires through research: a summary of key findings from the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC
This report presents an integrated view of the way forward from the fires, including exploring why the 2019-20 fire season was so devastating, what new capabilities can be implemented and how Australia can best learn from its worst fire season on record. It summarises the research findings from 23 projects. Some projects focused on what could be learned at a national level, while others analysed specific fire behaviour or technology in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.
The report offers insights on the following topics:
- Fire predictive services and fire management
- Cultural land management
- Community-centred disaster risk reduction
- Bushfire data and reconstruction
