We have undertaken 5 surveys examining the impacts and recovery trajectories of organisations affected by the 2010-11 Canterbury earthquake sequence.
We are developing a ‘menu’ of resilience initiatives that encompasses engineering and social sciences to provide decision-makers with a comprehensive list of options available to build resilience.
We have examined the effectiveness of Business Continuity Planning (BCP) following the 2010-11 Canterbury, New Zealand earthquakes. The study found that BCP was helpful for all organisations interviewed but more attention is needed on the management of societal and personal impacts; development of employee resilience, identification of effective crisis leaders; right-sizing plans and planning to seize opportunities post-disaster.
We are always interested in potential research or consulting projects that help us to apply or grow our resilience knowledge. If you are interested in working with us, please get in touch.
