Costs and benefits of flood mitigation in Launceston

With Launceston experiencing severe flooding in June 2016, this research reviewed the costs and benefits of mitigation work (upgraded levees). Findings show that the upgrading of the levee system resulted in avoiding losses of about $216 million (had the pre-existing levees failed), which is approximately four times the total investment in the new levee system.
