Abstract
The social and economic wellbeing of New Zealand’s rural communities is increasingly dependent on transient workers and visitors, many of whom are from overseas. New Zealand communities also face a diversity of natural hazards and building community resilience to these requires understanding local risk profiles and vulnerabilities, including those associated with transient population groups. This resource provides guidelines to assist local authorities identify and understand the transient population groups present in the communities under their remit.
