Head of Lake Whakatipu Adaptation Strategy Socio-Economic Impact Assessment - Residents & Businesses Survey
Otago Regional Council (ORC) in collaboration with Queenstown Lakes District Council, iwi, Department of Conservation, and local communities, is leading a programme of work to develop a Natural Hazard Adaptation Strategy for the Head of Lake Whakatipu. As part of this programme of work, Social Researchers from Beca have been commissioned by ORC to prepare the first phase of a Socio-economic Impact Assessment, supported by an Economic Specialist from Beca.
The primary purpose of this phase of the socio-economic impact assessment is to understand the vulnerability and resilience of the existing social and economic community at the Head of Lake Whakatipu, in relation to natural hazards. This information will feed into the Council’s Dynamic Adaptation Pathways Planning.
The Social Outcomes Specialists were in Glenorchy from 10-14th November interviewing members of the community. To supplement this research, they are following up with a residents and businesses survey to capture additional insights from the community. To support their research, please fill out this survey in your capacity as either a resident and/or business owner/operator. The questions are focused on understanding the community (e.g. how it functions, what it values) and its resilience to natural hazards.
Link to survey: https://forms.office.com/r/tVLTvWPGzb. The survey is open until Friday, 8 December 2023.
The Social Researchers will also be reaching out to some businesses about participating in a focus group or interview. This is to inform the economic component of their research.
If you have any questions, feel free to email email@example.com, or call +64 21 537 967.
