Christchurch

Sarah is the author of The Christchurch Fiasco: the Insurance Aftershock and its Implications for New Zealand and Beyond

My goal is to make my voice heard for the causes in which I believe so as to improve and contribute to a more sustainable and equitable society- New Zealand.

After the Christchurch earthquakes of 2010-2012 I was
astounded to find that when it comes to issues of real importance to the citizens of Christchurch - such as welfare, policyholder protection, economic security and education - our politicians and corporates are conveniently deaf, dumb and blind.
My intention is to expose the current Government and the insurance industry's failure to protect the citizens of Christchurch post earthquake and draw attention to the need for change in order to ensure that there is not a repeat of the Christchurch fiasco. My interests extend to the implications for insurance with the ever increasing natural disasters attributed to climate change.

And of course I have had my own insurance nightmare - see https://thechristchurchfiasco.wordpress.com/2013/02/01/my-insurance-nightmare/
