Building Resilience and Inclusion Amongst Vulnerable Populations Through Social Media
The project will create training resources on how to use social media to engage vulnerable populations.
The need for the project is driven by the risk of disasters — such as bushfires, heatwaves and floods — to vulnerable communities; the projected growth in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather-related disasters; and the increasing reliance on social media as a communication and information tool.
