Engagement on draft national adaptation plan and managed retreat
The draft plan sets out coordinated and comprehensive actions to support all sectors and communities adapt to the locked-in impacts of climate change, like rising sea levels and more frequent and severe weather events.
We’re asking for people’s views on the overall plan and on the proposed new legislation for managed retreat. This is the careful and planned retreat of people, places and sites of significance away from areas at high risk from the impacts of climate change.
Developing new legislation on managed retreat, as part of reform of the RMA, is one of the draft plan’s major actions. Engagement on the plan provides the opportunity for people to give their views on this as well.
