Society and Business

Our research contributes to improving the health and resilience of both society and business

Understanding the motivations behind community and business behaviour is key to identifying and prioritising possible mechanisms for change.

We work with government, businesses and communities to build resilience to natural hazards and improve the liveability of cities. We assist our clients in developing their long-term infrastructure strategies and plans, as well as helping to review the effectiveness of their existing policies and strategies.
