He Ekenga Ngaru - Māori community solutions to climate retreat and adaptation

The submission was informed by kōrero held at a symposium at Whakaue marae in Maketū, Bay of Plenty, with Māori planners, practitioners, researchers and kaitiaki from across the motu.

Felipe is a PhD student at the University of Canterbury investigating how local site characteristics influence the amount of ground motion experienced during an earthquake. His work is being used to improve models of ground shaking that are used to predict the impacts of earthquakes on buildings and infrastructure, and his presentation "How does the soil like to dance?" won the Judges Award at the 2023 QuakeCORE Annual Meeting.
