This report explores how regional and territorial authorities in Aotearoa New Zealand currently understand their role in climate adaptation, to what extent they are currently fulfilling that role, and how they engage with their communities – particularly those that are more susceptible to harm. The findings are based on 13 key informant interviews conducted with representatives from local authorities across Aotearoa New Zealand that are facing extreme exposure to the effects of climate change, focusing in particular on sea-level rise and increased frequency and intensity of storm events.
