The NHRP was created in September 2009 by Government to provide secure, long-term funding for natural hazard research, and to help research providers and end users work more closely together. It is led by GNS, includes NIWA as an anchor organisation, and has University of Canterbury, Massey University, Opus International Consultants, and University of Auckland as partners. There are also a further 20 subcontracts to other parties.
