How resilient are our communities as we face an increasing number of natural hazards resulting from climate change? Psychosocial, environmental and economic impacts of events such as the 2016 Kaikoura quakes, the 2017 Edgecumbe flood and the drought-induced Nelson/Tasman bush fire of February 2019 have had catastrophic consequences for those affected. This talk draws on global and local examples to showcase how Indigenous approaches to disaster management underpinned by cultural values are effective in addressing communities’ immediate and longer-term needs.
