This study was supported by three local environment groups working on community-led earthquake recovery: Avon-Ōtākaro Network, Avon-Ōtākaro Forest Park and Greening the Red Zone.
The study provides an analysis of floodplain planning considerations for earthquake affected lands in the Avon/Ōtākaro river corridor. Sea level rise impacts are an important consideration (Figure 1).
Outpits from this study include three reports looking at different aspects of the recovery and adaptation process in light of the current planning and decision context.
Floodplain restoration principles for the Avon-Ōtākaro Red Zone. Case studies and recommendations
Restoration opportunities assessment for the Avon Ōtākaro Red Zone using a local knowledge approach
Integrated assessment frameworks for evaluating large scale river corridor restoration
