Resilience – what we’ve achieved so far, and what are the outcomes for Māori?
By Kasey Oomen, Resilience Advisor at LINZ.
The Land Information NZ (LINZ) Resilience and Climate Change Team is tasked with the key challenge of supporting efforts to prepare for, mitigate and adapt to the impacts on land and sea of climate change and one-off events, and works with teams within and outside of LINZ to improve the current state of this Challenge. This Challenge focuses on three problem areas: key datasets and their fitness for purpose, LINZ’s formal emergency response, and assisting in issues relating to the current regulatory system. If you have a view on any of these focus areas, we’d love to hear from you!
