The New Zealand Lifelines Council has now completed the report ‘New Zealand Lifelines Infrastructure Vulnerability Assessment: Stage 1 September 2017’ which provides a summary of New Zealand’s national lifelines infrastructure and vulnerability to hazards.
This document has had wide input from national lifeline utilities, regional lifelines groups, New Zealand Lifelines Council members and key government / industry agencies involved in infrastructure resilience. Lifelines infrastructure refers to all the transport, energy, communications and water services sectors that are fundamental to supporting New Zealand’s communities and economy.
The use of this report by others and suggested enhancements is welcomed and encouraged. This report will be a live document with regular updates as new information comes to hand. In depth assessment of particular subjects will be contained in separate reports.
