Vision

Our diverse urban communities are resilient to disasters, being supported by policies and practices that are inclusive and relevant.

Project description

The Inclusive Urban Resilience project focuses on how to most effectively enable our diverse urban dwellers to become advocates for resilience.

Building resilience through fostering inclusion of diverse urban dwellers has become a central focus of policies and practices geared towards reducing the risk of disaster. The guiding principles of this project are based around the recommendations of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. This agenda requires us to:

  • Recognise the unique and diverse vulnerabilities and capacities of all urban communities across the country;
  • Build rapport and trust so that all communities’ voices are recognised and included in policy and practice;
  • Address the unequal power relations that underpin everyday marginalisation and neglect of those urban communities most vulnerable to natural hazards;

Working with a wider range of partners and stakeholders including NGOs and international organisations such as the Red Cross, our objectives include:

  • Mapping characteristics of urban communities’ vulnerabilities and capacities in facing natural hazards
  • Exploring vulnerabilities and capacities at the intersection of diverse urban communities, i.e. across gender and age, physical ability and poverty
  •  Identifying obstacles and pathways towards the inclusion of diverse urban communities in building resilience to natural hazards
  • Developing a conceptual and policy framework for fostering the inclusion of diverse urban communities in building resilience to natural hazards

Our goal is that new knowledge informs scholarship on disasters as well as policy and actions geared to reduce disaster risk.

He manawaroa ō mātou hapori noho taone kanorau i ngā aituā, ā, e tautokona ana e ngā kaupapahere me ngā tikanga kauawhi, whai tikanga hoki.

Whakaahuatanga papatono

E arotahi ana te kaupapa o te Manawaroa Taone Kauawhi ki te ara whai hua rawa hei whakamana i te hunga noho taone kanorau ki te noho hei kaihāpai i te manawaroa

Kua aro pū ngā kaupapahere me ngā tikanga e hāngai ana ki te whakaheke i te tūraru o tētahi aituā ki te whakawhanaketanga o te manawaroa mā te whakatītina i te kauawhitanga o te hunga noho taone kanorau. E hāngai ana ngā mātāpono o tēnei kaupapa ki ngā tūtohinga o te Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. E tohu ana tēnei kaupapa kia pēnei mātou:

  • Whakamana i ngā whakaraeraetanga motuhake, kanorau hoki, me ngā āheinga o ngā hapori noho taone puta noa i te motu;
  • Whakawhanake i te whanaungatanga me te whakawhirinakitanga kia rangona ai ngā reo o ngā hapori katoa, kia uru ai hoki ki ngā kaupapahere me ngā tikanga;
  • Whai urupare ki ngā āhuatanga o te mana rerekē i roto i ngā whakaparahakotanga me te whakahapatanga o ia rā o ngā hapori e tino whakaraerae ana ki ngā mōrearea o te taiao;

E mahi tahi ana mātou ki ētahi rangapū whānui ake, hunga whai pānga hoki, tae atu ki ngā NGO me ngā tōpūtanga o te ao whānui pērā i te Ripeka Whero, ā, ko ō mātou whāinga ko te:

  • Whakamahere i ngā āhuatanga o ngā whakaraeraetanga me ngā āheinga o ngā hapori noho taone i ngā mōrearea o te taiao
  • Tūhura i ngā whakaraeraetanga me ngā āheinga i te whakawhitinga o ngā hapori noho taone kanorau, arā, e whakawhiti ana i te ira me te pakeke, ngā āheinga ā-tinana me te rawakore.
  • Tautohu i ngā raruraru me ngā ara e whai ana i te kauawhitanga o ngā hapori noho taone kanorau ki te whakawhanake i te manawaroa i ngā mōrearea o te taiao
  • Whakawhanake i tētahi pou tarāwaho ā-ariā, ā-kaupapahere hoki hei whakatītina i te kauawhitanga o ngā hapori noho taone kanorau ki te whakawhanake i te manawaroa i ngā mōrearea o te taiao

Ko tō mātou whāinga kia whakamōhio te mātauranga hou i te mātauranga tiketike mō ngā aituā, ngā kaupapahere me ngā mahi e whakaheke nei i te tūraru o ngā aituā.
