Gender and bushfire

Fire Note 101, Gender and bushfire, highlights the importance of gender matters in the Australian bushfire context and considers how the international literature on gender and disaster relates in the areas of risk perception and exposure, preparedness behaviour and communication, and response and recovery. It aims to position gender and bushfire in the context of the wider international literature and recognise gender and disasters as a field of research.

This research is from the Effective communication: communities and bushfire project within the Bushfire CRC Communicating Risk program.
