Barriers to Post Disaster Reconstruction: Report on Workshop
A workshop was held to identify the challenges and barriers to post-disaster reconstruction in New Zealand to help guide research under Objective 3 of the Resilient Organisations project. The workshop brought together people with relevant experience in post-disaster reconstruction and/or specialist knowledge of the regulatory, legislative and contractual issues that could influence reconstruction. A list of attendees is given in Appendix A. This report summarises the key issues from the workshop and develops these issues into research directions. On the basis of both student and funding resources available, the report identifies the research that will be carried out as part of the current FRST funded research project. Other research from the priority list could potentially be carried out in the future if further research resources become available. The report is organised into the four key areas considered during the workshop: legislative and regulatory issues, coordination of reconstruction, contractual issues and resource issues.
