March 2017 – The Wellington Resilience Strategy
The Wellington Resilience Strategy was launched on 15 March 2017. The strategy, an effort led by the Wellington City Council with support from 100 Resilient Cities (pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation), “sets out a blueprint to enable Wellingtonians to better prepare for, respond to, and recover from disruptions”.
Dwell is proud to have been involved in the development of the strategy, with Alison Cadman being a member of the steering group.
It’s great to see resilience top of mind in Wellington and that one of the three goals is healthy and robust homes:
"Access to safe, warm, affordable and physically robust housing is a basic human right. Providing this for all Wellingtonians will boost quality of life across our city, supporting better health and education, particularly among our most vulnerable. Our homes will be supported by the right mix of assets and infrastructure – one in which natural and built assets work together in the face of a changing climate to sustainably meet Wellingtonians’ basic needs, such as clean air, safe drinking water and energy."
