Vision

Decision-makers in Aotearoa New Zealand to have the tools, guidance and processes to learn from past events and successfully plan for resilient futures under conditions of uncertainty.

Project description

The future is uncertain, and decision-makers in Aotearoa New Zealand have limited tools available to help learn from past events and plan readiness, response and recovery for a range of possible outcomes.

The Building Resilient Futures project applies a ‘futures’ lens to emergency management to consider how policy, strategies and actions can be informed by learnings from past events and allow for closer and more robust consideration of the future.

To achieve this, we are:

  • Developing hazard scenarios with end-users and partners to improve recovery planning for future events.
  • Researching community resilience and how risk communication is helping to promote strategies that meet the needs of a diverse Aotearoa New Zealand in terms of languages, cultures and abilities.

Our goal is for decision-makers in Aotearoa New Zealand to have the tools, guidance and methods they need to plan resilient futures under conditions of uncertainty.

Wawata

Ka whai rauemi, kupu tohutohu, tukanga hoki ngā kaiwhakatau i Aotearoa ki te whai mōhiotanga i ngā takunetanga o mua me te whakamahere kia tutuki pai ai ngā anamata manawaroa ahakoa ngā āhuatanga ohorere. 

Whakaahuatanga papatono

Kāore e mōhiotia ana te anamata, ā, ruarua noa iho ngā rauemi mā ngā kaiwhakatau hei āwhina i a rātou ki te whai mōhiotanga i ngā takunetanga o mua me te whakamahere kia rite, kia whai urupare, kia whai oranga mō ngā putanga maha.

He tirohanga anamata tō te kaupapa Te Hanga Anamata Manawaroa ki ngā whakahaere ohotata kia whakaarohia me pēhea e whakamōhio ai ngā kaupapa here, ngā rautaki me ngā mahi, mā ngā mōhiotanga i puta i ngā takunetanga o mua, kia pakari ai hoki te āta whai whakaaro atu ki te anamata.

Hei whakatutuki i tēnei, kei te:

  • Whakawhanake i ētahi whakaritenga mōrearea me ngā kaiwhakamahi-mutunga, hoa hoki kia pai ake ai te whakamahere whakaora mō ngā takunetanga o anamata.
  • Rangahau i te manawaroa hapori me te āhua o te hāpai o ngā whakawhitinga kōrero tūraru hei whakatairanga i ngā rautaki e tutuki ai ngā hiahia o ngā āhuatanga kanorau o Aotearoa, arā ko ngā reo, ngā ahurea me ngā āheinga.

Ko tō mātou whāinga mō ngā kaiwhakatau i Aotearoa kia whai i ngā rauemi, ngā tohutohu, me ngā tikanga e tutuki ai te whakamahere i ngā anamata manawaroa i raro i ngā āhuatanga ohorere.
