Climate change: the cascade effect: cascading impacts and implications for Aotearoa New Zealand
The interconnected – or cascading – social and economic impacts are the focus of this research, which builds on the Climate Change Impacts and Implications (CCII) work completed in 2016. Working with local government, infrastructure and financial sectors, the research involved system scoping and impacts assessment, three stakeholder workshops across New Zealand, and the development and refinement of cascading impact maps.
By understanding the cascading nature of the impacts of climate change, decision makers will be better able to plan, adapt and manage risks.
