Tangata Whenua residing in Murihiku (Southland region), Aotearoa/New Zealand have experienced a long history of seismicity, resulting from their proximity to the Alpine Fault system. Earthquakes have significantly shaped the land, and exacerbated the ongoing impacts of other environmental hazards. Climate change-related events such as sea level rise, ex-tropical cyclones, and severe storms (e.g. February 2020 Southland Floods) have added to the complex hazardscape in the region, and adversely impacted Tangata Whenua, physically, culturally, economically and spiritually. Iwi, hapū and marae frameworks such as Ngāi Tahu ki Murihiku’s Te Tangi a Tauira environmental management plan (2008) and Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu’s ‘He Rautaki Mō Te Huringa o te Āhuarangi’ climate change strategy (2018) take into account these change-related impacts and provide mechanisms for preparing, mitigating and responding to them.
