Vision

Our cities have governance structures, policies and plans informed by the latest natural hazards resilience knowledge.

Project description

Over the last decade, Aotearoa New Zealand has made significant investments in large-scale resilience research programmes such as Determining Volcanic Risk in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, and It’s Our Fault in Te-Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington. How much of this new knowledge can we see reflected in policies, practices and governance at the regional and national level?

In this workstream, we want to explore new and effective methods for transferring knowledge between our research programmes and the policies and practices of risk governance.

Drawing on case studies in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland and Te-Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington, we are:

  • Exploring the extent to which our hazard, risk and other resilience research is currently integrated into our plans and informing policy
  • Identifying best-practice avenues for seamlessly integrating resilience research into policy and practice
  • Exploring methods of effectively communicating research-informed hazard, risk and resilience information to our diverse urban communities.
  • Identifying how science and engineering research can contribute to operational decision support tools (e.g. real-time transportation and hazard and risk modelling to support evacuation decisions)
  • Explore how we can most effectively facilitate the uptake of our applied research in operational emergency management
  • Identifying what governance structures, frameworks, roles and responsibilities are required for effective post-event recovery to take place.

Our goal is to identify the best pathways to implementation and make recommendations for the design of future resilience research programmes.

He anga mana whakahaere, kaupapahere, mahere hoki tō ō tātou taone e whakamōhiotia ana e ngā mātauranga manawaroa i ngā mōrearea o te taiao hou.

Whakaahuatanga papatono

I te tekau tau kua hipa, kua tuku haumitanga nui a Aotearoa ki ngā hōtaka rangahau i te manawaroa whakahara pērā i te Determining Volcanic Risk in Auckland i Tāmaki Makaurau, i te It’s Our Fault hoki i Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Pēhea te maha o ēnei mātauranga hou e kitea ana i roto i ngā kaupapahere, ngā tikanga me te mana whakahaere ā-rohe, ā-motu hoki?

I roto i tēnei aramahi, e hiahia ana mātou ki te tūhura i ngā tikanga hou, whai hua hoki mō te whakawhiti mātauranga i waenga i ā mātou hōtaka me ngā kaupapahere, tikanga hoki o te mana whakahaere tūraru.

Mā te whai i ngā take rangahau i Tāmaki Makaurau me Te-Whanganui-a-Tara, kei te:

  • Tūhura i te korahi o te whakaurururutanga o ā mātou rangahau mōrearea, tūraru, me ētahi atu rangahau mō te manawaroa i roto i ā mātou mahere me te whakamōhio atu i ngā kaupapahere
  • Tautohu i ngā ara mahinga-pai hei āta whakauruuru i ngā rangahau mō te manawaroa ki ngā kaupapahere me ngā tikanga
  • Tūhura i ngā tikanga e whai hua ai te whakawhitiwhiti mōhiohio whai rangahau mō te mōrearea, tūraru me te manawaroa ki ō mātou hapori noho taone kanorau.
  • Tautohu me pēhea ngā rangahau pūtaiao me te pūhanga e tuku tāpaetanga ki ngā rauemi tautoko whakatau mahinga (hei tauira, te tūnuku wātonu me ngā whakatauiratanga mōrearea me te tūraru hei tautoko i ngā whakataunga whakatahi)
  • Tūhura me pēhea mātou e whakahaere pai i te whakamahinga o ā mātou rangahau whakahāngai i roto i ngā mahinga whakahaere ohotata
  • Tautohu ko ēhea ngā anga mana whakahaere, pou tarāwaho, tūranga me ngā haepapa e hiahia ana kia pai ai te whakaoranga i muri i te takunetanga.

Ko tō mātou whāinga ko te tautohu i ngā ara pai rawa ki te whakatinanatanga me te tuku tūtohinga mō te hoahoa o ngā hōtaka rangahau mō te manawaroa o anamata.
