Mission

Specialist earthquake engineers with a mission to raise risk consciousness and lift the levels of safety performance of major buildings and structures.

Disaster Reduction Goal

Save more lives by pro-actively leading the building & construction industry in reminding them how to raise risk consciousness and appropriately address those risks.

Policies and Programmes in DRR

Active in promoting the outcomes of the Southwest Pacific Earthquake Resilience Workshop, Aug 2011.

Membership in Key Networks

Membership of New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering.
Networking links with:
- South Pacific Engineers Association (SPEA),
- Australian Earthquake Engineering Society (AEES),
- Institution of Professional Engineers of New Zealand (IPENZ), - Southwest Pacific Earthquake Resilience Working Group (SWPERWG), representing NZ, Australia, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, PNG, Vanuatu, Cook Islands, Solomon Islands.
- earthquake engineering and materials testing experts

Making disaster risk reduction a policy priority, institutional strengthening (HFA 1)

Active in promoting the outcomes of the Southwest Pacific Earthquake Resilience Workshop (SWPERW, Aug 2011), with contributing delegates from private and public sectors in New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, PNG, Vanuatu, Cook Islands, Solomon Islands.

SWPERW Initiative 8: earthquake resilience capacity building in related fields including earthquake engineering, building controls and CDEM.

Risk assessment and early warning systems (HFA 2)

Active in promoting the outcomes of the Southwest Pacific Earthquake Resilience Workshop (SWPERW, Aug 2011), with contributing delegates from private and public sectors in NZ, Australia, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, PNG, Vanuatu, Cook Islands, Solomon Islands.

SWPERW Initiative 1: development of improved local seismograph and accelerograph monitoring networks

SWPERW Initiative 2: development of improved earthquake, tsunami and volcano event records & hazard mapping

Reducing underlying risk factors (HFA 4)

Active in promoting the outcomes of the Southwest Pacific Earthquake Resilience Workshop (SWPERW, Aug 2011), with contributing delegates from private and public sectors in NZ, Australia, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, PNG, Vanuatu, Cook Islands, Solomon Islands.

SWPERW Initiative 4: develop South Pacific Standards forum to facilitate creation and maintenance of locally appropriate design standards for use by infrastructure designers (e.g. for structural engineering design for earthquake and wind events).

SWPERW Initiative 7: appropriate development and land use planning.

Preparedness for effective response (HFA 5)

Experience in development and implementation of Building Safety Evaluation systems for use after a significant earthquake (Indonesia, New Zealand).

Active in promoting the outcomes of the Southwest Pacific Earthquake Resilience Workshop (SWPERW, Aug 2011), with contributing delegates from private and public sectors in NZ, Australia, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, PNG, Vanuatu, Cook Islands, Solomon Islands.

SWERW Initiative 6: capacity building and development of legislative framework for strengthening disaster response of local communities and engineering/local government sectors (e.g. including community based training, risk evaluation and planning, urban search and rescue, building safety evaluations).

Disaster Risk Reduction Focal Point(s)

* Earthquake Engineering:
