The background of Christchurch
The major earthquakes of 4th September 2010 and 22nd February 2011 devastated the New Zealand city of Christchurch. The city has been left with a multitude of social, economic and environmental issues. With much of the CBD not operating and structurally unsafe, the local population has lost jobs and businesses. There is an urgent need to provide financial and other support to the people of Christchurch most affected by the earthquakes to assist them in re-establishing their lives and livelihoods.It is clear that NZ Government money and insurance money will not be enough to regenerate the city. Inward investment is going to be required to assist the process, in order to establish what the future of Christchurch is.
