Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework for Recovery

 

Resolution number AE/2019/138

MOVED by Member L Corrick, seconded by Member R Langton:  

That the Albert-Eden Local Board:

a)      strongly support the preparation of the draft Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework for Recovery document as an important step in creating resilient communities who are able to respond to disasters, including those caused by climate change.

b)      support the community values, community priorities, vision, way we will work in recovery and the work to be done to be better prepared for recovery identified in the draft Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework for Recovery, particularly:

          i.             the partnership approach recognising and respecting diversity to ensure recovery is inclusive, and framing diversity as an opportunity for recovery.

          ii.            prioritising the well-being of individuals, families and communities and their recovery.

          iii.           recognising the psychosocial recovery required after a disaster.

c)      provide the following feedback on the draft Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework for Recovery:

          i.             local boards have primary responsibility for connecting with, activating and supporting their local communities and business associations, and experience in major emergencies such as the Christchurch earthquakes demonstrates that these connections are critical during disaster recovery.

          ii.            capacity and capability-building and community empowerment work already undertaken by local boards provides the best basis for building a community-led approach to resilience and recovery, which will significantly impact a community’s ability to cope with and recover from a disaster.

          iii.           request an action to review current local board work programmes to identify local projects which could have an emergency management capacity-building element added to them, to build recovery preparedness.

         iv.           consideration of a funding model that releases funds that provides emergency accommodation and relief by community groups such as marae and religious organisations.
