Inner City East – One Christchurch community’s story
Keywords:canterbury earthquakes, christchurch earthquakes, disaster, recovery, inner city east, community,
AbstractThe process of recovery for communities adversely affected by natural disaster is often conceived as a steady journey back to what was. Experience in Christchurch following the 2010/2011 sequence of disastrous earthquakes tells us that recovery is actually very complex and will, in large part, depend upon the strengths of the community before the disaster. This article is the story so far, of one inner city community, how it responded to the disaster and how it is participating in its own recovery
