Draft Climate Change Strategy

Thanks for your interest in our Climate Change Strategy. This consultation closed April 2015. 



The consultation period for providing feedback has now closed

Tell us what you think about the Greater Wellington Regional Council’s draft Climate Change Strategy for the Wellington region.

Climate change is something that will affect everyone in the region. It is often described as the biggest environmental challenge we face.


As a coastal region, hemmed in to the east, south, and west by the sea, we are particularly vulnerable to even a small rise in sea level, and coastal hazards such as erosion and storm surge.


This will be significant and expensive for some landowners across the region. Storms occurring on top of a higher sea level will affect public infrastructure such as transport network and stormwater systems, as well as people’s homes and other buildings.

With help from the community, the Greater Wellington Regional Council has developed a draft Climate Change Strategy for the Wellington region to increase awareness of the risks and to outline the actions it plans to take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help the region to adapt to the effects of climate change.

What do people in the Wellington region think about climate change? What actions are needed? Get involved, share your views, let us know what’s important to you.
