Agriculture hui: What's the rural sector's role in tackling climate change?

Closes 31 May 2024

Opened 8 Apr 2024


We are currently developing advice for the Government about tackling climate change over the coming decades.

Our role is to provide independent, impartial advice to the Government about choices they can make – and the pros and cons of different options.

We want to hear from farmers, growers and people in rural communities to help us develop this advice. You are an important part of our process and we want to hear your thoughts.

About the consultation (click to expand)

He Pou a Rangi Climate Change Commission is holding a consultation from 8 April to 31 May on three pieces of work regarding Aotearoa New Zealand's emissions reduction target and emissions budgets.

All three pieces of advice are due to be delivered to the Minister before 31 December 2024.

The Government will then use the advice to make decisions that will guide the country's actions, planning, and investment decisions for the next 20–30 years.

Meeting you in your region

It's important that our advice to the Government reflects the insights, views and experiences of people, communities and sectors across Aotearoa New Zealand.

Sharing what you know will help us to ground our advice, and make sure it accurately reflects all the challenges and opportunities facing the nation.

We will be visiting the following regions. Please register your attendance by following the links below.
