Recovering from Disaster

In an article in the NZICA Journal titled ‘Recovering from Disasters’ the lessons learned from disaster recovery in Brisbane, Australia and Yangon, Myanmar are reviewed to identify opportunities for accountants and auditors in the aftermath of New Zealand’s devastating earthquake in Christchurch.

The authors draw on their extensive experience in disaster risk assessment, accounting, auditing and community capacity building to provide insight into the needs of devastated communities. The relationship between hazards, exposure and vulnerability of the community at risk provides a unique methodology for analysing risk and identifying risk treatment options.

ERSA has applied this structured approach to a wide range of disaster risk assessments including  a review of recovery and reconstruction after cyclone NARGIS in Myanmar and a review of disaster management plans for the Queensland Cultural Centre (QCC) following the devastating floods of 2011.
