Tasmanian State Natural Disaster Risk Assessment

The 2016 Tasmanian State Natural Disaster Risk Assessment (TSNDRA) examines the state level risks associated with bushfires, storms, severe weather events, earthquakes, landslips, coastal inundation, heatwaves, and human influenza pandemic. The TSNDRA provides a basis for decision-making across the Tasmanian emergency management sector; particularly in relation to risk reduction and mitigation activity priorities.

The TSNDRA was prepared by a project team from the University of Tasmania, RMIT University and the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre. The TSNDRA was endorsed by the State Emergency Management Committee in June 2016 as the authoritative state level natural disaster risk assessment for Tasmania.
