Urgent scientific research and data collection

The extreme weather science response funded time-bound, evidence-based science services and perishable research and data collection to address immediate needs and inform response decisions following the North Island extreme weather events in early 2023.

MBIE provided $8.6 million from the Strategic Science Investment Fund by 31 June 2023.

Due to the urgency of the science support needed and the limited opportunity to collect data, MBIE worked with Chief Science Advisors across government and received advice from an expert advisory panel to identify high priority areas of work that were the most urgent and potentially impactful.

More information about the funded projects and their outputs is on the Extreme Weather Research Platform from Resilience to Nature’s Challenges.
