Governance boundaries vastly different across hazards 2. Strategies are imperfectly linked into land management and planning, particularly at regional level and vertically 3. Response is still the driver for planning 4. Fast onset favoured over slow onset hazards 5. Local government heavy built environment responsibilities with little power or resources 6. State response agencies with resources but limited connections into local government 7. Built environment often understood as seen as static 8. Citizens treated as homogenous 9. Strong expectation of effective response despite shared responsibility policies
