Third sector organisations and earthquake recovery planning in Christchurch, New Zealand

Third Sector Review
Volume 21 Issue 2 (Nov 2015)

Abstract: Following the February 2011 Christchurch earthquake, citizens increasingly turned to third sector organisations (TSOs) for social services. Spatial patterns of traditional vulnerability metrics from the 2006 and 2013 census were interpreted, based on surveys of local TSOs. TSOs were found to have maintained business as usual, and evolved to the demands the recovering city was making on their organisations and clients. Weighted vulnerability indices demonstrated that the vulnerability factors of renting and social assistance were identified by TSOs as being amplified by the earthquake. These raised vulnerability in 54 to 65 per cent of the area units in the Christchurch City District.
