Community disaster challenge
How might we understand what makes communities strong in disasters?
A list of useful Queensland Government open datasets are tagged on data.qld.gov.au
- Available data describes ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘where’ ‘when’ and even ‘why’ a disaster occurred – but what about how communities and individuals were affected?
- How is resilience enabled by infrastructure, procedures and social factors?
- Rebuilding stronger, faster, sustainably and inclusively after disasters
- Story telling is a very powerful tool…
What is your solution?
We suggest you consider using the following four Queensland Government open datasets on data.qld.gov.au
- Queensland Resilience Index
- Queensland Regional Household Survey
- Qld Community Preparedness Survey (May 2013)
- Qld Community Preparedness Survey (Nov 2013)
