Climate change

Responding to the climate challenge

Climate change is one of the gravest threats to Aotearoa New Zealand’s security and prosperity, and ultimately our wellbeing. We have three priorities in addressing this challenge.
  • Working with the world

    MFAT leads our climate diplomacy and international negotiations as we work with the rest of the world to reach a more effective response to climate change.

  • New Zealand's climate action in our region

    Working with our neighbours: We support climate action in our region, with priority on a resilient Pacific.

  • Supporting New Zealand’s transition

    Working across government: New Zealand is taking action to reduce our own greenhouse gas emissions to meet our international obligations.
