Abstract

This report presents findings from key informant and focus group interviews conducted in the Beechworth region in North East Victoria in late 2010 and early 2011 to explore community experiences with bushfire events. The case study is part of a larger research project funded by the Commonwealth Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency and led by James Cook University titled "Recovery from disaster experience: its effect on perceptions of climate change risk and on adaptive behaviours to prevent, prepare, and respond to future climate contingencies". The project is aimed at ‘identifying private and public sector groups’ beliefs, behaviours and policies that have supported community resilience to a disaster event.
