Three years ago, Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) and the Ministry of Transport (MoT) established the Brown Bag Resilience Series (BBRS), as one-hour lunchtime face-to-face talks for policy, strategy, planning, utilities, emergency, advisors, tertiary, scientists and students.
These lunchtime talks were so interesting that the team decided to create a virtual series of seminars to accommodate more people amid the COVID-19 restrictions.
The Brown Bag Resilience Series webinars are for those working in disaster risk reduction, emergency management, and climate change adaptation who strive to improve the resilience of their communities.
The first of the series will be on the 8th of December, 12:30 to 1 PM New Zealand Time.
The key elements of the LINZ team’s work programme are:
- To drive priority improvements in the most valuable geospatial datasets for resilience
- To enable LINZ to provide better support to other agencies during emergency response and recovery
- To support LINZ’s cross-system role in helping improve our communities’ resilience and climate adaptation planning.
This session will:
- Highlight key data improvements made by LINZ and its partners over the past two years
- Outline the services that LINZ can provide to support emergency response and recovery
- Touch-on work with others to drive system improvements to New Zealand’s resilience to hazards.
Rob Deakin, Manager Resilience, Land Information New Zealand, will do the presentation.
