Abstract

This paper, commissioned by the Northern Territory Emergency Services, explores the existing literature on the psycho-social impact of voluntary evacuation. A review of the literature revealed that findings and theoretical frameworks used in studies of any type of evacuation tend to view and group factors in two main ways. To highlight these two areas, the literature review is organised under the headings of Individual Factors Affecting Decision Making for Evacuation and Community Factors Affecting Decision Making for Evacuation.
