  • How can planning and design modify bushfire risk?
  • Climate change adaptation, urban growth modelling and bushfire hazard            
  • Planning for biodiversity, 2 case studies
  • The new state planning policy- bushfire overlay codes for planners and the new bushfire risk mapping that includes non-remnant vegetation.
  • Accounting for fire risk in the peri-urban zone within SE Queensland
  • Bushfire Responsive Architecture: Reconciling Biodiversity Conservation and Bushfire safety with daily life
  • AS 3959 – the latest in standards
  • Strategic land use planning practices used in achieving community resilience.
