The Motivating Resilience project built on existing risk sharing toolkits and financial interventions to develop insurance law and initiatives that increase resilience across Aotearoa New Zealand. Through researching the insurance response following the Christchurch Earthquakes, the project identified how and when the insurance system did not incentivise risk reduction, speed up recovery, enable productive investments, or protect the vulnerable parts of our society. Based on this, the project made government submissions advocating for several updates to insurance law that will enable Aotearoa New Zealand to be more “resilient to nature’s challenges”.
