A scheme to improve Māori community engagement in the event of natural disasters and other emergencies is among projects to win support from a regional civil defence fund.

Civil Defence Minister Kris Faafoi says the Resilience Fund will this year grant $670,000 to eight projects.

In recent years the fund has made possible a number of valuable projects including the AF8 Alpine Fault earthquake response plan, East Coast LAB or Life at the Boundary and the Marae Preparedness Toolkit.

Karl Wairama, who put together the application for the Te ara o Tāwhaki project, says a review of the Kaikoura earthquake response indicated a need for greater responsivity to Māori when designing solutions.

The project will look at community resilience and develop measurements that apply to Māori communities.

It will use kaupapa Māori processes and traditional Māori stories to create a framework, as well as assessment and engagement with communities.

I will continue writing about the state taking children until something meaningful has occurred
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: If you have the privilege of a platform, you must endeavour to use that platform for good. I have written previous columns about the extraordinary abuse of power by the state when they take children into their 'care'.
State Spying and a Police who see no spying, hear no spying and speak no spying
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury:: John Campbell's remarkable investigation at the beginning of the week into a Government agency tasked with looking after earthquake survivors using corporate spies to secretly tape complaining earthquake survivors was made more important by the remarkable announcement midweek from the NZ Police that found nothing illegal in the actions of anyone involved.
