Type of content
As part of the CAE project on Organisational Attitudes and Risk Communication a case study to explore risk communication for Natural Hazards was undertaken. The focus of this study was the eastern Bay of Plenty community affected by flooding in July 2004. The study investigated risk communication between stakeholders – primarily local government and the community – that preceded the flood event and how effective this was in terms of influencing community behaviour before, during and after the floods.
