Abstract

This project provided the Greater Wellington Regional Council with community-input based recommendations for improving their current flood warning system on the Waiwhetu stream to promote a more people-based warning system. We achieved this by researching their current warning system, developing preparedness materials, and investigating the community’s perceptions of preparedness, awareness, and the current system. We recommended implementing tiered, redundant early warning media including Emergency Mobile Alerts and voice sirens, a flood preparedness campaign, and an all-stakeholder “one-stop shop” website.
