New Lincoln website on Maori resilience to the earthquakes...

Kia ora koutou,
We now have our own web representation on Lincoln University's site for our research project, "Māori Resilience through the Otautahi 'quakes: the roleand future prospects of economic, cultural and environmental networks".

This site will ultimately provide space for a range of research projects that inform Maori resilience, beginning with the Lincoln project to examine the response and recovery of  Maori networks to the recent devastating earthquakes (and we had another large aftershock last night, measuring magnitude 5.5!).

Please feel free to visit this site and add comments. We are currently interviewing selected informants and will be presenting preliminary results soon. We will use our Lincoln pages to keep people updated and informed of our progress on what is an important issue, namely how to enhance Maori disaster preparedness.
