Launched in 2008, the DEVORA Programme brings together researchers from across New Zealand and beyond to assess volcanic hazard and risk in Auckland. DEVORA researchers work with Auckland Emergency Management to incorporate findings into policy, and with lifelines organisations and businesses to improve their resilience to volcanic threats.
A night to celebrate our co-leader Jan's promotion to Professor. A huge accomplishment, and Jan is one of only three Professor of Geosciences in Aotearoa. The lecture followed Jan's journey around the globe, the many research projects, doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers Jan has collaborated with.
The DEVORA Research Programme aims to make Auckland more resilient, better prepared for, and safer from volcanic activity.
