Hapori Māori - Māori communities

Hapori Māori (Māori communities) are often disproportionately affected by natural hazards such as coastal erosion, flooding, wildfires and volcanic eruptions. Māori also hold an important role as kaitiaki of their local environments, and their knowledges of past natural hazard events and impacts can inform strategies to build resilience.

Our research teams are working with hapū in case study communities to support these resilience building efforts, and develop strategies and tools that other hapori Māori may benefit from.
