In New Zealand natural hazards are part of everyday life with an ever-present risk of earthquakes, tsunami and volcanic eruptions. Responses to these high impact, low probability events are well established and generally supported by communities who accept the risks. However, it is the slower onset hazards, including climate change, sea level rise and coastal erosion, that are proving harder to deal with. These hazards carry a higher probability, but the slow onset has led to indecision, deferment of action, and historically event driven responses over a short-term planning horizon.
