About the event

New Zealand and her communities are very vulnerable to the effects of climate change, e.g. extreme weather, floods, sea-level rise. However, we do not seem to have progressed very far in adapting to these climate effects. This evening looks at examples of what is happening here and overseas in this area. From pioneering insurance products and what we would call a Crown Entity running community and large-scale adaptation, to groundbreaking work in South Island and a NZ parliamentary perspective. Join us for what promises to be an interesting evening. Speakers: Paul Zaanen-Joseph and Associates, NZ Jonathan Kassian- Flood Re, UK Dr Megan Woods, MP - New Zealand Parliament, NZ Dr Kate Kipling- Environment Agency, UK
