To support the Wellington Region to transition to a low-carbon future that is resilient to climate impacts, the Wellington Regional Leadership Committee has commissioned a Wellington Regional Climate Change Impact Assessment (WRCCIA). The assessment offers insights into potential risks and impacts associated with climate change across the Wellington Region, in a regionally consistent method at both regional and local authority scales. The WRCCIA has been designed to inform decision making across the region. The WRCCIA involved a qualitative assessment of the potential climate change risks and their impacts across the region, followed by a more detailed assessment of selected risks and impacts to the specific elements of the built environment, natural environment, human / social domain and the economy.
