New report out on the human health impacts of climate change in NZ


The Royal Society has released a new report on climate change that looks at the human health impacts in NZ across a range of factors. Impacts relevant to three waters management include the possible abandonment or relocation of neighbourhoods in flood or erosion prone areas and increased pressures on water quality and quantity. Such impacts would increase the challenges in providing safe drinking water as well as effective wastewater and stormwater services to communities. A copy of the report and other resources can be found here.
