Climate change and resilience

Climate change poses a huge challenge for communities as more frequent extreme weather events require us to rethink how we live and where. Local authorities are at the forefront of efforts to respond, with responsibilities for environmental planning and regulation, as well as civil defence. Many councils have plans to reduce emissions in their area and are working to help their communities adapt to a warming world.

  • Implement the Albert-Eden Climate Action Plan urgently by working alongside the community to reduce our collective carbon footprint.

    Support transport options for communities (safer walking, cycling and public transport) given 64% of the city's emissions are transport.

    Plant more native trees and grow our urban ngahere (forest) and green canopy.

  • Implement the Albert-Eden Climate Action Plan.

    Expand the local board Ngahere Strategy to increase overall tree cover.

    Improve access to town centres by walking and cycling.

  • Prioritise funding for and delivery of board's new Climate Action Plan (mitigation and adaptation measures).

    Urgently reduce the board's own carbon footprint (eg more online meetings, meatless food, reduce food waste, reduce car parks).

    Prioritise public and active transport to maximise progress on carbon emissions reductions for the climate – safer easier walking and biking.

  • Prioritise funding for Te Ao Māori environmental initiatives that deliver the Albert-Eden Climate Action Plan.

    Educate communities on the intersectionality of climate justice and indigenous approaches to environmental health.

    Support local secondhand op-shops to address the negative environmental impact of fast fashion in the local community.

  • Focus on local priority areas of more sustainable transport, built and natural environments.

    Work with stakeholders engaged in developing Ōwairaka to ensure environmental measures are in place which positively impact our environment.

    Endorse better accessibility to electric buses and ferries, as well as availability of electric vehicle chargers in public car parks throughout Auckland.

  • Encourage communities to adopt sustainable living practices.

    Support infrastructure planning to be climate-proof for future generations.

    Push for further electrification of public transport to take a positive step towards lowering emissions.

  • Meet council's emissions reductions target by implementing measures that contribute the most towards attaining those targets.

    Prioritise investment into coastal inundation mitigation projects to better manage the impact of rising sea levels.

    Investigate reforestation of marginal farm land. Note effects of deforestation at Climate Change Commission Report 31 May 2021 page 189.
