Abstract : To fulfil its Charter, the Australian Counter Disaster College is required to contribute to the development of an efficient Australian counter-disaster capability by training selected personnel in counter-disaster and civil defence requirements; by fostering understanding and cooperation between appropriate elements of the community and by undertaking research into selected aspects of disaster. The College has also devoted considerable effort to increasing the public's awareness of the potential disaster hazards which attend their daily lives and to fostering co-operation and understanding between the many and diverse statutory, professional and volunteer organizations who become involved in preparing for and responding to disaster situations. This task involved a survey, the results of which led to the compilation of a disaster research directory which will, in turn, allow voids or duplication in research effort to be identified. This Australian Disaster Research Directory is now published in provisional form, in the hope that it will stimulate additional input for the first edition of the Directory, to be published in 1984.
