National Disaster Resilience Strategy
The National Disaster Resilience Strategy aims to help strengthen the resilience of the country by managing risks and improving emergency response. The Strategy presents the objectives to be pursued to meet those goals, what is expected in respect of a resilient New Zealand, and how to achieve that over the next 10 years. It sets three priorities: risk management, effective response and recovery from emergencies, and enabling, empowering and supporting communities. The Strategy came into effect on 10 April 2019 and replaces the previous National Civil Defence Emergency Management Strategy. It is set on a 10-year timeframe.
