Late March was a milestone for the RESCCUE Project and its Vanuatu team.
They joined delegations from across the Pacific, including RESCCUE pilot sites of New Caledonia, Fiji and French Polynesia. Representatives from community and business leaders, NGO's global donors, research agencies and governments joined the Pacific Community (SPC) to share and celebrate climate change adaptation actions and the insights generated over the last few years.
Nick Aiken, WSP Opus Market Leader Environment and Planning, shares his insights from the NZPI Conference in Napier-Ahuriri.
WSP Opus continues to lead the way in diversity and inclusion as it welcomes a fresh intake of new graduates.
This time last year ex-tropical cyclones Fehi and Gita caused over $81 million dollars of destruction during their six-week siege of New Zealand’s west coast.
The fury of Fehi and Gita forced the West Coast, Nelson and Tasman regions into a state of emergency; with many communities needing to evacuate their homes due to severe storms, flooding and contamination.
March 14th marks the International Day of Action for Rivers - a day (amongst many) where communities band together to celebrate the conversations & initiatives that are happening to support and protect our natural river ways.
Today marks World Wildlife Day and an opportunity to dig deeper into the work WSP Opus is doing to help preserve New Zealand’s threatened species and their habitat to ensure that these exist for our future generations.
