SCIRT Learning Legacy website

A quick note to let you know that the SCIRT Learning Legacy website was launched:

It documents what SCIRT was, how it worked and the valuable lessons that have been learnt about the complex challenges of post-disaster recovery operations.

SCIRT’s funders, the Government and the Christchurch City Council, support the creation of the Learning Legacy website so the city can share the knowledge gathered in Canterbury with the rest of the country and help equip other leaders and communities around the world to prepare for and deal with similar events.

The site features about 70 items, with more to be added over the coming month.

It has been developed by SCIRT in conjunction with the University of Canterbury Quake Centre, UC CEISMIC and Resilient Organisations.

“The SCIRT Learning Legacy website is not only a great source of information for international organisations about being prepared for an event of this magnitude, but also for local people to understand a crucial part of the city’s recovery from the earthquakes,” Lianne Dalziel, Mayor of Christchurch said.
