Vision

Enhanced community resilience as a result of building capability and capacity to cope with disruptions and shocks, and to adapt to and change in new circumstances.

Project description

The speed and extent of recovery from natural hazard events often vary significantly across communities depending on factors such as socio-economic status, the level of external support and aid, past experience of disasters and the nature and severity of the disaster.

Working with our stakeholders in central and local government and other third parties, including the New Zealand Red Cross, we aim to obtain a deeper understanding of the contextual nature of vulnerability and provide additional insight into effective pathways for addressing the underlying causes of risk, to enhance wellbeing and resilience in the face of disruptions and shocks.

To achieve this, we are developing new tools and processes to enhance wellbeing and resilience, including Serious Games and a methodological toolbox for assessing adaptation, transformation and resilience.

Case studies on regional and urban food security, rural and urban and precarious livelihoods are providing new insight into the factors that enhance wellbeing and contribute to resilient communities, focusing on the social connectivity, networks and relationships that bind individuals and communities together.

By working with some of Aotearoa New Zealand’s most vulnerable to enhance everyday wellbeing and resilience – socially, ecologically and culturally – we can increase the capacity for communities to bounce back from immediate shocks and help them pro-actively respond to slow-building changes and avoid potential disasters.

Ka pakari ake te manawaroa o te hapori nā runga i te whakawhanake i te āheinga me te raukaha ki te whakahaere i ngā whakararutanga me ngā ohoreretanga, me te urutau ki ngā āhuatanga hou.

Whakaahuatanga papatono

I te nuinga o te wā ka rerekē rawa te tere me te whānui o te whakaoranga i ngā takunetanga mōrearea o te taiao puta noa i ngā hapori maha, ā, kei te āhua tonu o ngā āhuatanga pēra i te tūnga ohapori, te taumata o te tautoko me te āwhina ā-waho, ngā wheako aituā o mua me te āhua, te taikaha hoki o te aituā.

Mā te mahi tahi atu ki te hunga whaipānga i te kāwanatanga ā-motu, ā-rohe, me ētahi atu tōpūtanga, tae atu ki te Rīpeka Whero Aotearoa, e whai ana mātou ki te rapu i te māramatanga hōhonu ake ki ngā āhuatanga o te horopaki o te whakaraerae, ki te tuku hoki i ētahi atu tirohanga ki ngā ara whai hua hei urupare i ngā pūtake o te tūraru, ki te whakapakari i te oranga me te manawaroa i roto i ngā whakararutanga me ngā ohoreretanga.

Hei whakatutuki i tēnei, e whakawhanake ana mātou i ngā rauemi me ngā tukanga hei whakapakari i te oranga me te manawaroa, tae atu ki Serious Games me tētahi keteparaha tikanga hei aromatawai i ngā urutaunga, whakaumutanga me te manawaroa.

E tuku ana ngā take rangahau mō ngā haumarutanga kai ā-rohe, ā-taone, te tuawhenua, te taone me te whiwhinga moni pānekeneke, i ngā tirohanga hou ki ngā āhuatanga e whakapakari nei i te oranga, e whai hua hoki ki te manawaroa o ngā hapori, e aro ana ki ngā hononga pāpori, ngā whatunga me ngā whanaungatanga e here nei i te tangata me te hapori.

Mā te mahi tahi ki ētahi o te hunga whakaraerae rawa hei whakapakari i te oranga o ia rā me te manawaroa – ā-papori, ā-hauropi, ā-ahurea – ka whakawhānui ake i te raukaha o ngā hapori ki te puta ora i ngā ohoreretanga wawe, ki te āwhina hoki i a rātou ki te whai urupare ake ki ngā panonitanga e āta tipu haere ana me te kaupare i ngā tūpono aituā.
