Aotearoa New Zealand’s urban communities are resilient to natural hazards, supported by inclusive policies and practices informed by new resilience knowledge and technologies.
The urgency for future urban resilience solutions is increasing. Our urban areas are growing rapidly, with increasingly diverse populations; greater loads on our infrastructure; and increased exposure to natural hazards including the effects of climate change.
In the Urban Communities programme, we are extending our Auckland-centred urban resilience work from Phase 1 of the Resilience Challenge to focus on the urban resilience of Aotearoa New Zealand as a whole.
We are seeking evidence and solutions to address challenges and opportunities for resilience that are emerging due to population changes, technological advancements, densification of our built environment, and a growing understanding of disaster risk to our cities.
Our goal is to develop a thriving Community of Practice of urban resilience researchers and practitioners including partners in local and national government, communities, businesses, Māori organisations and major research programmes who are applying and adapting co-created, multi-hazard, resilience solutions for our cities.
E manawaroa ana ngā hapori noho taone o Aotearoa ki ngā mōrearea o te taiao, ā, e tautokona ana e ngā kaupapahere me ngā mahi kauawhi e whakamōhiotia ana e ngā mōhiohio manawaroa hou me ngā hangarau.
E kōhukihuki haere ana te hiahia ki ngā rongoā kia manawaroa ai ngā taone. E horapa haere ana ā mātou rohenga tāone, ā, e piki haere ana te kanorau o ngā taupori; kua taumaha haere te tūāhanga; ā, kua piki haere te whakaraerae ki ngā mōrearea taiao tae atu ki ngā hua o te āhuarangi hurihuri.
I roto i te hōtaka o Urban Communities, e whātoro ana ā mātou mahi mō te manawaroa o ngā taone e aro pū ana ki a Tāmaki Makaurau mai i te Wāhanga 1 o te Resilience Challenge kia aro ki te manawaroa o ngā taone i Aotearoa whānui.
E rapu ana mātou i ngā taunakitanga me ngā rongoā hei urupare i ngā wero me ngā āheinga manawaroa e puta mai ana i ngā hurihanga o te taupori, ngā kōkiritanga hangarau, te whakaapiapitanga o te taiao hanga, me te mārama haere ki ngā tūraru aituā ki i tātou taone.
Ko tō mātou whāinga ko te whakawhanake i tētahi Hapori Tapatahi o ngā kairangahau me ngā mātanga manawaroa taone tae atu ki ngā rangapū i te kāwanatanga ā-rohe, ā-motu, ngā hapori, ngā pakihi, ngā tōpūtanga Māori me ngā hotaka rangahau nui e whakamahi ana, e urutau ana i ngā rongoā manawaroa, mōrearea-matarau, i hangaia tahitia mō ō tātou taone.
