The Resilience Challenge

One of the most ambitious initiatives undertaken by New Zealand to develop and apply new scientific solutions to transform our response, recovery and “bounce-back” from our wide diversity of natural hazards.

What we do

The challenge

To enhance New Zealand’s resilience to natural hazards.



All over the country our scientists are investigating how we can build New Zealand’s resilience. 



Working with stakeholders and end-users to ensure our research is useful and usable.
