    Hi Claire,
    I am from the New Zealand Red Cross recovery team and a former colleague of Elizabeth McNaughton (who had the pleasure of meeting you and discussing recovery leadership a couple of years ago). We have recently published a book as part of our post-earthquake in Christchurch experience that you might be interested in, it is available here
    love to discuss further if you are interested.
