Adapt and thrive: Building a climate-resilient Aotearoa New Zealand

Closed 3 Jun 2022

Opened 27 Apr 2022


All New Zealanders can adapt to the locked-in effects of climate change. The sooner we act, the more effective that action will be.

We sought your feedback on the plan. It’s been put together so we can minimise the damage from a changing climate. We asked about how climate change is affecting you, potential impacts you are concerned about, actions you are taking and what other actions are needed.
