Hazard Mitigation in New Zealand: A Presentation by Kristin Hoskin
In 2008, APA's Jim Schwab, AICP, was invited by the Centre for Advanced Engineering in New Zealand (CAENZ), located at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, to serve as a visiting fellow, studying New Zealand hazards planning and offering consultation on national hazards policy. Schwab's trip lasted three weeks from July 25 to August 15, 2008, during which he traveled the country, delivering seven different lectures and seminars, including presentation at the Australasian Natural Hazards Conference and to a joint meeting of staff members of the Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Civil Defense and Emergency Management. A year later, in October 2009, Kristin Hoskin, who managed Jim's itinerary for CAENZ, visited APA in Chicago. She delivered a presentation and was interviewed for this episode.
