Resilience of infrastructure

This indicator will show how durable New Zealand’s physical infrastructure is in terms of being able to withstand natural and man-made hazards.

Physical infrastructure relates to the fundamental structures that are necessary for an economy to function. These include:

  • transport networks (including road, rail, and air options)
  • the nation’s power grid
  • sewerage and waste disposal systems
  • national communication systems.
This indicator is still to be developed.
