Project Summary

Natural hazard events cause significant economic consequences for communities, ranging from the immediate to long term. Resilience and adaptation interventions to minimise these impacts have often been selected based on direct and physical impacts. Socio-economic impacts were not well understood and therefore not incorporated into resilience planning.

The Enabling Pathways to Resilience project worked to develop economic decision support tools to integrate with existing MERIT and RiskScape modelling to enable high resolution assessment of economic consequences, response and recovery options. The project worked with the Wellington Lifelines Group on a Wellington earthquake scenario case study, which delivered new and comprehensive learnings for all stakeholders and demonstrated the critical linkages between physical, economic and social resilience.
