Investment in the construction sector to reduce disaster risk management

This paper uses the construction sector organisations in New Zealand as a case study of the impact of disaster risk reduction on business functioning after an event. 

The paper concludes that in order to ensure that the disaster recovery and reconstruction programs are successfully
implemented, it is necessary for construction organisations to be resilient and able to respond and recover from an event. A resilient construction sector is responsive, adaptable and able to lead in a disaster. Resilience indicators help construction organisations with enhancing business risk reduction measures so that they can survive and be useful in a disaster.
