Geoscience Australia is engaging in capacity building for disaster-risk management in the Asia-Pacific region. In a technical workshop, 40 representatives from 13 developing nations are trained to improve their capacity to assess natural hazard risk. The training includes hazard and risk modeling tools including how to develop hazard maps and impact scenarios for earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and tropical cyclones.
