The report assesses residual risks associated with a lahar (fluid and debris flow event) generated on Ruapehu, a volcanic mountain in the centre of the North Island of New Zealand.

The Civil Defence Emergency Management Act (CDEM Act) 2002 came into effect on 1 December 2002. It replaced the Civil Defence Act 1983. Minor amendments to the Act were made in 2012.

Tephra is published by the Ministry to raise awareness and understanding of the major hazards we face in New Zealand, and address issues relevant to managing these hazards.

Director's Guidelines provide guidance and advice on how a function defined by legislation or national planning arrangements should be performed.
Best Practice Guides supplement the CDEM Act, Regulations and Director's Guidelines. They are informative in nature, not being issued under the Act's authority. They serve to provide information, current best practice examples and advice on how to carry out a range of CDEM tasks and are usually developed in partnership with a range of agencies.
