A webinar hosted by SOLGM (the New Zealand Society of Local Government Managers) with Professor Iain White, presenting findings from our Impacts and Implications paper outlining current knowledge and priority areas of research needed to prepare our stormwater and wastewater systems for a changing climate.
This workshop aims to support and develop a community of “climate ambassadors,” who can champion an informed and proactive climate adaptation agenda in research, policy, the public and private sectors and within local communities.

Climate change is already changing the nature of the weather and the seasonal climate, and raising sea levels across the globe. Left unchecked, climate change presents huge risks for food security, water availability, and habitability. It is the number one problem facing humanity.
Rescuing historic weather to understand New Zealand’s future climate
A community-driven initiative in South Dunedin is getting the rolling on climate adaptation. “Our City, Our Climate,” led by the Blueskin Resilient Communities Trust and supported by the Deep South Challenge, is calling in the big guns – key climate scientists, local and central government decision makers, iwi with cultural and financial assets at stake, and property and business owners with livelihoods on the line, to find ways to break through the red tape that currently hinders progress on climate adaptation.
This year at SCANZ, members of the Deep South Challenge as well as science communicators from other National Science Challenges, will be participating in a panel exploring the challenges and highlights of communicating about New Zealand's most pressing social and scientific issues.
