Warming of the climate is unequivocal, with temperature increases already influencing the intensity and frequency of many extreme events across the globe.

Auckland Council and Council Controlled Organisations commissioned the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) to provide climate change projections, including high-resolution maps for the Auckland region. 

This work will help support greater resilience and sustainable decision-making under a changing climate. This summary presents some of the key findings of the full technical report (TR2017/030) and some of the potential impacts and opportunities for the Auckland region.
