Insights from New Zealand's Earthquake Commission

New Zealand’s Earthquake Commission Te Komihana Ruwhenua is a Crown-owned, natural disaster insurance agency covering residential damage from earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, tsunami, and geothermal activity, and land damage from storm and floods. It was set up in the 1940s following excessively slow economic recovery from a series of earthquakes, and had a specific intent to protect the physical assets of New Zealanders and enable faster rebuild and repair following disasters.

This presentation and discussion will look at New Zealand’s public-private model of insurance, how it has learned from the devastating Canterbury Earthquake Sequence of 2010-2011, and how the EQC is now playing a pivotal role disaster risk reduction in New Zealand – leveraging its unique position between government, science, financial institutions, and the public, and its investment in science, research, and data.
