At Rehua Marae, Christchurch with the PM launching Oranga Marae to enable planning, refurbishment, feasibility studies and disaster preparedness planning. We have increased funding availability of $12m over four years from Wellbeing Budget 2019. It’s pleasing to see Marae, hapū and Iwi engaging in CDEM responses. Lots of learning from Rena, Christchurch and Kaukoura quakes, Matata debris and flood disaster, and Fires in Whakatū. engaging Maori in first response can improve community safety and resilience as well as strengthening social cohesion.
