Project Summary

Natural hazards can directly and indirectly impact infrastructure, businesses, and communities, which are interconnected in complex ways. Focusing on the 11 Territorial Authorities in the Waikato region, we asked: ‘How do these interconnections affect the resilience of local economies to natural hazards?’ This study has helped develop a transferable method for identifying resilience-enhancing characteristics of local economies and ‘hot spots’ (critical industry sectors and inter-regional links) that amplify the flow-on impacts from natural hazards through the economy. The results provide a greater level of detail which is needed to support local government and communities in prioritising resilience-building strategies.
