Disasters on Disasters

The Disasters on Disasters program of work aims to explore how to best support people and communities through multiple disasters. It includes a comprehensive scoping review of international evidence, meta-analysis, a workforce study, and future work in communities.

This is an emerging program of work – please check back later for details.

If you are in a community that has experienced multiple disasters and would like to get involved in this research, please contact Claire Leppold at claire.leppold@unimelb.edu.au
