The SCIRT Learning Legacy project began part way through the SCIRT programme to capture, document and share SCIRT learnings and innovations. It aims to make freely available the resources and tools to benefit organisations and communities world-wide, particularly those in high hazard zones.
Governments, local authorities and large public asset owners world-wide in high earthquake (or other hazard) prone locations are anticipated to be primary beneficiaries and users. Academics and students studying response to natural hazards and subsequent rebuild programmes are also expected to be major users of the compiled legacy repository. Any organisation undertaking a major infrastructure project may find this website useful.
The EQ Recovery Learning website is a platform for sharing tools, insights and information from the Canterbury earthquake recovery to help leaders and communities faced with disaster recovery in the future.
The EQ Recovery Learning website is part of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. They work with organisations and groups across recovery, including the private sector, community organisations, social enterprise and government, to bring together the collective learning from the Canterbury earthquakes.
SCIRT would like to thank and acknowledge the valuable contributions of Callaghan Innovation, the Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand (IPENZ), the University of Auckland, the University of Canterbury and its organisations, UC CEISMIC, and the Quake Centre and Resilient Organisations. We would also like to acknowledge the time, assistance and advice of the Olympic Delivery Authority (UK), and the numerous organisations and individuals that played a role in forming the SCIRT Learning Legacy.
The following description is a simplified summary of the contributions that led to the establishment of the SCIRT Learning Legacy. It shows how the concept developed over time with valuable inputs from many sources.
