Reducing underlying risk factors (HFA 4)

The main focus of our research and education lies within this action point. We provide community co-produced research in enhancing the resilience of farming, tourism and communities. Our professionally accredited planning degrees enable students to graduate with DRR knowledge and skills, We also contribute specialist policy and planning components to specialist DRR qualifications.
Lincoln University has a tradition of working in international rural development and our DRR offerings enable a strong combination with International Rural Development.

Preparedness for effective response (HFA 5)

Our programme includes working with local government to aid in responding and recovery from disastrous events and many of our staff have direct, lived experience in coping with and contributing to community response to disaster in the wake of the Christchurch earthquakes.
Our buildings have ben reviewed since the Christchurch earthquake and strengthened or rebuilt as necessary to the new stronger building codes and we have regular emergency drills to improve our ability to effectively respond to an earthquake or other disaster.

Other activities

The effects of the Canterbury earthquake sequences of 2010-2012 and our proximity to Christchurch, one of the 100 Resilient Cities, means that we live in, educate and conduct research within an ongoing resilience "'laboratory" that provides excellent opportunities to host researchers and educate students.
