Executive Summary

Located in the south-western Pacific Ocean, New Zealand sits on two tectonic plates within the Pacific ring of fire, resulting in the country’s dramatic natural landscapes. New Zealand is prone to a range of natural hazards, such as floods, storms, cyclones, snow-storms, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, geothermal incidents, tsunamis, landslides, and lahar. Climate-related risks are expected to be exacerbated by climate change.
