Projects

Communities, including our two case study areas (i.e. the Forrest/Otways and Goulburn-Murray regions), are asking how can they be more resilient, adaptive, cleaner, greener, manage risks, and cope with surprises? We are helping to answer this and other questions using state-of-the-art computational and participatory approaches.
