Sustainable Risk & Resilience Research Project

The United Nations states, "It is urgent and critical to anticipate, plan for and reduce disaster risk in order to more effectively protect persons, communities and countries, their livelihoods, health, cultural heritage, socioeconomic assets and ecosystems, and thus strengthen their resilience". Risk and resilience cannot be managed in isolation. The need for a community approach to resilience is why an integrated destination management model to evaluate destination health and track and monitor risk is essential.

The Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) in partnership with EarthCheck and Bundaberg Tourism are undertaking research to understand the current risk and resilience needs of the Bundaberg region and to identify opportunities for training and support to build and strengthen the tourism industry’s responsiveness to crisis.

In order to understand the current risk approach taken in the Bundaberg region, we are seeking your feedback. Please complete the following questionnaire, it should take no more than ten minutes to complete and will provide us with insight into the preparedness and understanding of risk and resilience across the region:
