Short Term Recovery Programme

Following the February earthquake, Government allocated $2M (GST ex) in emergency funding to develop projects addressing Christchurch recovery needs. The Short Term Recovery Programme (STRP) generated critical data that was taken up by key stakeholders and presented at the Royal Commission of Inquiry on the Canterbury Earthquakes (see the Document Library). Reports, manuscripts and conference papers stemming from this work are provided below.
