NIUPATCH stands for Navigate In Unity: Pacific Approaches to Community-Humanitarianism. It shines the light on how Pacific diasporic communities throughout Aotearoa/New Zealand and abroad respond to disaster and humanitarian challenges. We do this through the exchange of practice, ideas, projects and research.
As a central village of Pacific research, practice and innovation in Massey University’s School of Psychology, NIUPATCH is the Pacific-arm of Joint Centre for Disaster Research (JCDR), Health and Ageing Team (HART) and Ending Poverty and Inequality Cluster (EPIC).
