Abstract/Summary This two-year project reviewed education, awareness and engagement (EAE) programs and activities designed to enhance community safety for natural hazards in Australia. The project was an outcome of the recommendations of the 2002 report to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) on Natural Disasters in Australia (published by the Australian Government Department of Transport and Regional Services, 2004). As part of the response to the report, the National Community Safety Working Group (NCSWG) of the Australian Emergency Management Committee (AEMC) commissioned a research team from the School of Global Studies, Social Science and Planning at RMIT University to review present community EAE practices in order to understand how they might be improved and more effectively tailored to suit State, Territory and local circumstances.
