The Centre for Disaster Management and Public Safety (CDMPS) is a research centre established at the University of Melbourne focused on conducting multi-disciplinary research and training on disaster management and public safety both nationally and internationally.
Research at CDMPS focuses on themes associated with preparing for, responding to, recovering from, and mitigating against incidents across the all-hazards spectrum of emergency/disaster management. This is an important objective in light of major disasters worldwide which have had significant impact.
Key goals of the Centre are to:
- Conduct world recognized research into disaster/emergency management and public safety
- Encourage collaborative research projects with state and federal governments in Australia, the private sector and leading overseas universities stakeholders
- Create an open-standards initiative to develop interoperability architecture to test and develop models on multi hazard disasters
- Disseminate research findings through academic publications, seminars, conferences and scholarly interchange
- Develop and enhance the knowledge base and research capabilities in emergency/disaster management through research, training and specific initiatives such as workshops, symposia and conferences
- Conduct short training programs in the fields of emergency/disaster management especially at the executive level for government agencies (both Australian and international), private sector bodies and other interested groups
