Submission on NPS Natural Hazard Decision Making

20 November 2023

Taituarā and LGNZ strongly support a standardised national framework for natural hazards – and climate change – decision making. Within this framework we would expect to see standardised terminology, mapping and risk assessment methodologies, what risks should be assessed and to what extent – all wellbeing outcomes, definition of risk thresholds, and the establishment of clear processes for determining risk tolerance, underpinned by better information and evidence. We’d also expect to see the issues of funding, capability and capacity addressed.
