2019 Conference: "Changing with our Climate"
You'll find the programme and other useful information about our upcoming May 2019 Deep South Challenge conference at this section of our website.
Kia Urutau | Adapt (Challenge Magazine, May 2019)
To coincide with our May 2019 conference, "Changing with our Climate," we produced a coffee-table style magazine. With feature stories exploring the future of kai in our changing climate, and climate risks at our urban edges, the magazine is illustrated with breathtaking photography by award-winning photographer Sylvie Whinray. Also contains profiles of ten "adaptation champions" - Challenge researchers and partners/stakeholders. Well worth a read! Please email us if you'd like a hard copy.

Latest news and updates
Major climate modelling effort captures New Zealand’s exceptional oceanic conditions, leading to better climate simulations
The significant effort to develop and run New Zealand’s own Earth System Model (NZESM), within the Deep South Challenge: Changing with our Climate, is leading to more realistic climate simulations for New Zealand.
The Deep South Challenge: Changing with our Climate is humbled and excited that its Kāhui Māori have agreed to share their knowledge with the Antarctic Science Platform, and to act as its Kāhui Māori (Māori advisory group) as well.
We in the Deep South Challenge have established a critical new position, the "Climate Change Knowledge Broker". This person will play a critical role in the Deep South Challenge as a translator between disciplines, enabling connections between different research programmes for maximum impact. In particular, the Climate Change Knowledge Broker will focus on making the outputs from the New Zealand Earth System Model (NZESM) and associated climate models, accessible to research in other programmes within the Challenge as well as to external stakeholders. Applications close Monday 11 May.
