    Abstract As part of a strategy that aims at achieving an acceptable level of risk from
    earthquake and geological hazards in the region, the Regional Council
    has undertaken an assessment of the seismic hazards in the region, and
    the vulnerability of the community to the hazard.

    undertake a liquefaction hazard study for the Wellington Region.
