Response and recovery leadership capability recognition process launched

RRANZ has launched a process for the recognition of prior learning (RPL) and recognition of current capability (RCC) for the Response and Recovery Leadership Development Programme (RRLDP).

This will allow public and private sector emergency management leaders a pathway to complete RPL/RCC certification in place of attending the RRLDP. RRANZ are working on enabling successful participants in RRLDP courses to gain academic credit as university recognised credentials.

For more information or to apply visit the RRANZ website.

Increasing global risks

The world isn’t becoming a safer place. Yet, with the world more attuned to risk, lessons can be drawn to strengthen response and resilience.

Crisis management readings

Māori responses to COVID-19

Māori infection rates from COVID-19 are perhaps the only example in Aotearoa New Zealand’s contemporary history where Māori have achieved better social outcomes than non-Māori.

Crisis leadership – the power of swarm intelligence

Covid response lessons from Ontario, Canada

The Ontario Auditor General has issued a Report into Ontario’s COVID 19 response.

The short reflection contains many lessons for emergency managers. The full report is also available to download.

Earthquake early-warning in Aotearoa

Is there public support for the establishment of an earthquake early warning system in New Zealand?

Check out the survey results from a Massey University team who asked 3084 Kiwis that question.
