Nature and Climate Group

Healthy ecosystems are fundamental to the well-being of all life on Earth. The unique biodiversity and ecosystems of Nelson Tasman are vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, but can also help to mitigate these changes over time.

We envisage a Nelson Tasman region where all our communities – individuals, families, iwi, businesses, policy-makers, and elected officials – recognise the intrinsic value of supporting and protecting ecosystems and biodiversity, the well-being of te Taiao and the urgent need to address climate change through individual and collective actions.

We aim to build on existing national and regional biodiversity strategies by focusing our efforts on:

  • Specific actions in priority areas/locations/ecosystems that will make a difference to ecosystem resilience in the face of climate change impacts. These include both direct impacts, and those caused indirectly by human adaptations to climate change.
  • Ecosystem-related actions, including carbon sequestration, can provide climate solutions.

The Climate Action Book

The Nelson Tasman Climate Forum offers this plan for every citizen of our region — for individuals, households, businesses, farmers, schools and colleges, religious organisations, councils and iwi. We also hope to help other parts of Aotearoa to develop their own Climate Action Plans and contribute to the development of Climate Action Plans around the world.
