Local Government Conference 2018. Minister's speech
The Minister of Local Government, Hon Nanaia Mahuta, spoke at the Local Government New Zealand Conference, 17 July 2018. I am pleased that the Minister of Finance and Climate Change have preceded my presentation because you will appreciate that we are thinking about the big challenges ahead as we respond to pressures for growth, protecting and enhancing our environment, strengthening our resilience and ensuring that all our people can contribute to and share in the prosperity of our country, people, cities and communities. We are on a journey which in my mind requires us to work differently and in a way that builds a critical partnership and takes account of our respective roles at central and local government levels.
Climate change projections for New Zealand
This report addresses expected changes in New Zealand’s climate (temperature and many other climate variables) out to 2120, and draws heavily on climate model simulations from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report. This 2018 '2nd Edition' of Climate Change Projections for New Zealand is the same as the original 2016 report, except for incorporation of results from a 2018 report on very extreme rainfall – the “HIRDS” report (Carey-Smith et al. , 2018).
