Launched in 2008, the DEVORA Programme brings together researchers from across New Zealand and beyond to assess volcanic hazard and risk in Auckland. DEVORA researchers work with Auckland Emergency Management to incorporate findings into policy, and with lifelines organisations and businesses to improve their resilience to volcanic threats.
For more than 10 years, DEVORA (DEtermining VOlcanic Risk in Auckland) has been focused on preparing New Zealand’s largest city for a volcanic eruption – and the ongoing disruption.
The United Nations Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR) focuses on major efforts to reduce disaster risk.
Research on all aspects of monogenetic (small-volume) volcanism has been presented at the Fourth International Maar Conference (4IMC) in Auckland.
