About CERA

 

Overview

The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA) is the agency established by the Government to lead and coordinate the ongoing recovery effort following the devastating earthquakes of September 2010 and February 2011.

The scale of the disaster means the overall recovery requires integrated and timely decision making across a range of organisations.

CERA is supporting a range of organisations in making well co-ordinated and timely decisions. It aims to help restore the social, economic, cultural and environmental well-being of greater Christchurch communities.

Our role

Our role includes:

  • Providing leadership and coordination for the ongoing recovery effort.
  • Focusing on business recovery, restoring local communities and making sure the right structures are in place for rebuilding.
  • Enabling an effective and timely rebuilding.
  • Working closely with Christchurch City Council, Selwyn District Council, Waimakariri District Council and Environment Canterbury and engaging with local communities of greater Christchurch, including Ngāi Tahu, the private sector and the business sector.
  • Keeping people and communities informed.

How does CERA work?

CERA reports to the Minister for Canterbury Earthquake Recovery, Gerry Brownlee, who is responsible for coordinating the planning, spending, and actual rebuilding work needed for the recovery.

Special powers have been vested in the Minister for Canterbury Earthquake Recovery and the new Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority in order to enable an effective, timely and co-ordinated rebuilding and recovery effort. 

The Minister for Canterbury Earthquake Recovery and CERA will be working in a spirit of collaboration with the Christchurch City Council, Selwyn District Council, Waimakariri District Council and Environment Canterbury and engage with the local communities of greater Christchurch, including Ngai Tahu, the private sector and business interests.

In addition a forum of Canterbury cross-party parliamentary members will be set-up to share information on the recovery efforts.

CERA will be funded by way of a new separate Vote.
