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.
