Land buy backs in flood-prone areas in the media

Associate Professor Andrew Western from the Department of Infrastructure Engineering has discussed the buy back of land in flood zones for The Conversation.

Assoc. Prof. Western comments on the Victorian Government’s proposal to buy back flood-prone land, saying it provides an opportunity to fix some past mistakes, provided it is targeted well.

Assoc. Prof. Western recently wrote another piece for The Conversation, which argued against building on flood plains. His previous article is also available from The Conversation site.
