Masters thesis

Through literature review, case studies and semi-structured interviews, a pool of knowledge was identified using a kaupapa Maori approach to draw out a set of themes and indicators.

Conclusion supports hypothesis:

 That Maori are not adequately prepared or included regarding modern hazards and disaster response
 A lack of Maori involvement results in inequalities
 Valuable gains can be made with a Maori-centred approach and proper treatment of Maori issues
