A toolbox for risk based land use planning for natural hazards

This toolbox aims to support risk-based land use policy and plan development in local government. It offers a new approach where consequences of natural hazard events are the focus. It presents techniques, practice steps and options for enabling local government to review multiple natural hazard risks, both within councils and with external stakeholders.

The toolbox is presented in three key themes:

  • setting the scene for why this approach is important;
  • the five step risk based approach for natural hazards and;
  • examples of implementation.

This toolbox is offered as a resource and guide, and is not intended as a prescription or as an off-the-shelf solution to successful management of natural hazards.
