dc.description.abstractThis research project explores ways to utilise public open spaces to be part of resilient framework in Auckland in the event of a volcanic eruption and the likely subsequent secondary disasters (such as earthquakes and tsunami). This research employed Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and consists of two parts: (1) identification of public open spaces that are suitable as natural disaster evacuation sites in Auckland Region, and (2) development of a design strategy or a model of multifunctional park that can serve as an evacuation zone or be part of evacuation routes. Findings from this research may also be applicable to other places that have high risks of disasters. The concept of a multifunctional park is to enable an open to be used for daily non-emergency programmes as well as emergency response programmes during a disaster situation, to make a city more resilient and prepared for the natural disasters.
