To make Aotearoa New Zealand more resilient to high impact weather and wildfire.
Aotearoa New Zealand is vulnerable to high impact weather events. Such events have caused over $4 billion in damage during the past 20 years. The cost is not only financial; people have lost their lives, homes, businesses, and Māori cultural heritage sites have been damaged or destroyed. Climate change is steadily increasing the severity and frequency of these extreme weather events.
We aim to use recent advances in computer modelling to give land-use planners, emergency response managers and affected communities the information they need to plan for and mitigate high impact weather events.
To do this, we are working with stakeholders and partners in central and local government, utilities providers, and hapū and iwi to:
Our research will make Aotearoa New Zealand more resilient to the rising risk of extreme weather and wildfire by helping our stakeholders and partners protect lives, infrastructure, property, and cultural heritage.
Kia manawaroa ake a Aotearoa i te huarere taikaha me te ahi pūkākā.
He whakaraerae a Aotearoa ki te huarere taikaha. Nui ake i te $4 piriona te nui o te whakamōtī i ngā tau 20 ki muri. Ehara i te mea he moni noa iho te utu; engari kua ngaro atu te tangata, ngā kāinga, ngā pakihi, ā, kua whakamōtī ngā wāhi tuku iho a te Māori. Nā te āhuarangi hurihuri i piki haere te kaha me te putanga o te huarere taikaha.
Kei te whai mātou ki te whakamahi i ngā kōkiritanga whakatauira ā-rorohiko hei tuku mōhiohio ki ngā kaiwhakamahere whakamahinga-whenua, ngā kaiwhakahaere urupare ohotata me ngā hapori whaipānga kia pai ai tā rātou whakamahere, me te whakamauru i ngā pāpātanga nui o te huarere.
Hei whakatutuki i tēnei, kei te mahi tahi mātou ki te hunga whaipānga me ngā hoa mahi o te kāwanatanga ā-motu, ā-rohe hoki, ngā ratonga tūāpapa, ngā hapū me ngā iwi ki te:
Mā ā mātou rangahau e manawaroa ake ai a Aoteroa ki te pikinga o te tūraru o te huarere taikaha me te ahi pūkākā mā te āwhina i te hunga whaipānga me ngā hoa mahi ki te whakahaumaru i te tangata, te tūāhanga, ngā rawa me ngā taonga tuku iho ā-ahurea.
Kia pai ake te tiaki i te taiao ahurea Māori i te huarere taikaha
