Pathways to Improved Resilience

Leader: David Johnston
Deputy Leader: Caroline Orchiston & Wendy Saunders
Industry Representative:
 Dan Neely

 

Our goal in Flagship 5 is to identify how societal decisions and choices affect the social, culture and economic resilience of communities, at local, regional and national scales. QuakeCoRE will bring together expertise from a range of disciplines, including tangata whenua knowledge to develop a holistic understanding of social, cultural and economic impacts from earthquakes; thus, providing key input to policy decisions at all levels of government and building a resilience community of practice.
