This is how we're responding in Canterbury wide.

Leading climate change resilience

Environment Canterbury, as the regional council, helps Canterbury/Waitaha councils work together to develop a shared understanding of the implications of climate change for our region, and strategies to manage risks and opportunities. It is also committed to helping communities to understand and prepare for climate change, and to reduce its own carbon impact.

Environment Canterbury’s programme to integrate climate change into all work and decisions began in 2018, followed by a climate emergency declaration. Its work programmes include projections of climate change along with research to assess risks and opportunities.

The regional council founded this website to share its climate change science.
