Climate change & adaptation for the land and environment

Climate change & adaptation for the land and environment

Description

This NIWA led, FRST funded project will create the necessary information and tools to enable adaptation by central and local government and communities to the impacts of climate-induced change on the coastal environment.

The programme has four main components:

1.Building a national coastal vulnerability profile 2.Engaging communities and institutional decision-makers 3.Institutionalising adaptation, and 4.Evaluating and monitoring uptake and performance of adaptation strategies. AgResearch is involved with the community engagement aspect of the research, in particular addressing the question ‘how can we engage with the public over adaptation to climate change?’.
