The Ministry for the Environment is seeking to appoint a team of experts to prepare New Zealand’s first National Climate Change Risk Assessment (NCCRA). The NCCRA will provide a national overview of how New Zealand may be affected by various hazards and threats that are caused, exacerbated or influenced by climate change.
The intent of the NCCRA is to consolidate and analyse a wide range of information on climate risks in order to raise public awareness and inform effective and prioritised adaptation action planning through a National Adaptation Plan (NAP). The supplier will gather and analyse existing knowledge about risks to New Zealand’s economy, society, and environment from the current and future effects of climate change, and identify the gaps in our knowledge/evidence base.
The analysis will be carried out using the attached risk assessment framework that enables a broad range of risks to be systematically compared. The NCCRA will inform the development of a NAP, by enabling the Government to understand which risks are the most significant ones that need to be addressed in the short term.
The preparation of the first NCCRA will involve engagement with a large number of experts, risk owners, sectoral representatives, central and local government agencies and hapū/iwi/Māori in order to obtain existing information on risks and vulnerabilities. Engagement will also help ensure that the views of risk owners and those affected by the risks are considered in the analysis.
