Review of the role of trust, salience and beliefs on people's responses to weather warnings

Jun 24,2020

Lead: Amisha Mehta, Communication Task Team

Amisha recently joined the Communication Task Team to lead a review into the influence of trust, salience and beliefs on warning response. She is planning on putting together a project plan by July 2020. Anyone interested in being part of this activity is encouraged to contact Amisha ata.mehta@qut.edu.au. 

A research study is underway to examine how participants trust weather forecasts and agency warnings in the context of flood events. This work is part of a program funded by the Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre and co-designed with Victoria State Emergency Services and the Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology.
