Incorporating Climate Change projections into water service planning - Workshop

Climate Change impacts on water infrastructure are wide reaching. Incorporating both climate and hydrology projections into infrastructure design and planning will help us prepare for future impacts. This workshop will introduce participants to research-based data outputs that can be used for this purpose and will provide information on how they can be used, their strengths and weaknesses, and future research developments.

The Deep South National Science Challenge is one of 11 government funded national science challenges to help enable New Zealanders to adapt, manage risk and thrive in a changing climate. Researchers in the Deep South Challenge have generated a range of datasets that can be used to understand what our future climate will look like.

Join researches from the Deep South Challenge to discuss climate and hydrology projections under climate change, the data available and how it can be used to adapt to our changing climate.

This workshop will:

  1. Introduce participants to climate projections that could be incorporated into water services planning.
  2. Provide an opportunity for researchers and end users to connect.
  3. Generate discussion on where water services can incorporate climate change projections.
  4. Input into fact sheets to make available information on available climate projections.

To attend this workshop you do need to register for the Water New Zealand Conference & Expo
