"This edition of the Australian Journal of Emergency Management provides further important evidence of the science behind disaster mitigation and includes research reported at the AFAC18 conference in Perth last month.
I am sure that those who heard the presentations at the Shine Dome and read the journal’s pages will need little further reminder of the continuing scientific and other challenges of living in a land of ‘droughts and flooding rains’."
