Whole of Government Report: Lessons from the Canterbury earthquake sequence

Greater Christchurch Group has released its Whole of Government report on the lessons from the Canterbury earthquake sequence.

The report is a literature review of the published material related to the recovery from the Canterbury earthquake sequence, and provides a whole of government perspective on the lessons from the Government’s recovery efforts.

Lessons across five areas have been drawn from the material. The areas include: Recovery Governance Arrangements, Recovery Legislation, Land Decisions, Insurance Response, and Horizontal Infrastructure Rebuild Programme.

It is anticipated that this report will be used as a basis for further work to help the Government prepare for recovery from future large-scale earthquake and natural hazard events, as well as other highly complex challenges.
