Resilience to nature’s challenges researchers want to make resilience visible

The human brain processes information visually. How can we help people see resilience? Stories. Photos. Displaying layers of data on a map.

The trajectories toolbox has ammased a bank of over 400 indicators that have been used to capture some aspect of resilience to disruption in the complex systems that make up life in New Zealand. Seeing-the-invisbleThese indicators are being matched to available data and will be geocoded in a way that will allow us to see the differences across space and time.

As the saying goes “what gets measured gets done”. When communities are able to set targets and track their progress it motivates action. Researchers, communities, and resilience practitioners will be able to mine existing public data in a resilience context to assess their strengths, weaknesses, assets, and capabilities. The trajectories toolbox will also continue to work across the challenge working with community based co-creation partners and with Government players needing to track progress toward the National Resilience Plan and the Sendai Framework for Action.
