Past NZ Rivers Group Events
Climate change is expected to increase the risk of coastal hazards around New Zealand as sea level rises. Join us for an update on the latest sea level rise science and a new approach to support coastal communities prepare for long term change.
Dr Rob Bell (NIWA), Dr Judy Lawrence (Victoria University) and Emma Lemire (Ministry for the Environment) will present on the key information from the Ministry for the Environment’s updated Coastal Hazards and Climate Change guidance document:
- National guidance on sea level rise projections and the latest science
- The relationship between climate change and coastal hazards
- Using sea level rise scenarios in adaptive planning
- Engagement expectations between councils and communities
- Community planning under conditions of uncertainty (the dynamic adaptive pathways planning approach)
Following the presentations, there will be time for questions and discussion.
