Implementing the residential red zone programme

As a result of the earthquakes, land damage and life risk saw some of the worst affected areas zoned ‘red’. This video describes the community engagement activities undertaken by CERA to implement the Crown offer to purchase residential properties. This video explores the challenges faced by governments when communities are displaced by major natural disasters, and the importance of people-centred recovery. 

The way those messages were communicated had to be completely adapted to acknowledge the loss, the turmoil and disruption to people’s lives.
