Natural Hazards Courses (PDF 1 page summary)
Project start date: January 1997
The multidisciplinary skills across GNS Science and NIWA are combined to offer two-day courses covering the management and planning for a range of natural hazards. Four courses have been developed to focus on coastal, earthquake, extreme weather & flooding, and volcanic hazards. Each course educates attendees on how to prepare for and reduce the physical, economic and social impacts of the natural hazard. The courses are for anyone with an interest or role in assessing, managing or communicating the risks associated with natural hazard events, such as: planners; emergency managers; educators; engineers; utility & asset managers; and local, regional, and central government policy makers.
