On shaky ground – the contribution of geoscience to disaster risk management in Aotearoa-New Zealand: Lessons from Recent Earthquakes

The Canterbury and Kaikōura earthquakes were the first major earthquake disasters to affect Aotearoa-New Zealand in over 70 years. They caused substantial, complex and long-lasting impacts to Ōtautahi-Chrstichurch, Waitaha-Canterbury and nationally, and have left a powerful legacy across many parts of our society. Ten years on from the start of the Canterbury Earthquake Sequence, and in the shadow of a global pandemic, three earthquake hazard and disaster risk management experts will explore what we have learnt from this disaster through the broad lens of geosciences. They will explore what positive changes have occurred and what critical issues must be addressed to improve our resilience to future earthquakes.

Andy Nicol – Professor of Earthquake Geology, University of Canterbury
Jo Horrocks – Chief Resilience and Research Officer, Earthquake Commission
Marion Schoenfeld – Senior Hazards Analyst, Christchurch City Council

Facilitator: Tom Wilson - Professor of Disaster Risk and Resilience, University of Canterbury
