This report is the second and final report prepared by the Climate Change Adaptation Technical Working Group. It provides recommendations for the actions New Zealand needs to take to build resilience to the effects of climate change while growing the economy sustainably.
NZIER has estimated the impacts of the economy adjusting to 2050 greenhouse gas targets. The results show that meeting ambitious emissions targets comes with significant economic costs, and demonstrate the trade-offs required to transition to a lower-emissions economy.
Investing in green infrastructure helps Australia and New Zealand to reach their current climate targets and the potential ratchet up of international emissions goals.
Modelling was commissioned to provide a better understanding of the contribution of New Zealand’s livestock methane to warming. The commissioner is releasing the results of the modelling to ensure that wider policy discussions are grounded in the underlying science.
This inquiry concluded that New Zealand can indeed make the transition to a low-emissions economy. But there will be tough challenges along the way. It will require consistent and concerted effort across government, business, households and communities – up to and beyond 2050.
The projects in this booklet show there is an extensive and practical body of knowledge on climate change and that this knowledge stems from some of the best and brightest of New Zealand's primary sector scientists.
As New Zealand joins with other countries to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, it will come under increasing pressure from changing economic opportunities, potentially disruptive new technologies, natural resource constraints, and evolving social and political drivers.
This report shows how climate change will impact on New Zealander’s health over the next 50-100 years, and makes the case for better preparation.
Addressing New Zealand’s energy challenges will necessitate more proactive and inclusive policy co-ordination by government and regulatory authorities than that practiced since the late 1980’s.
New Zealand has had climate change policies in place for some time, but these have not been effective in reducing domestic emissions. For businesses, households, investors and consumers to manage the risks and seize the opportunities of moving to a low-emissions future, change is needed....
