Climate change

“Climate change is the defining challenge of our era. Porirua City Council is responding to the demands of our community to act on climate change.


Our climate change strategy ‘Rautaki o te ao Hurihuri’  has been developed in response to the declaration of a climate emergency by Porirua City Council on 26th June 2019. It lists actions that will be taken over the next 3-4 years. These actions are intended to support mitigating the effects of climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and to prepare the city for the impacts of climate change.

Climate Change Survey

Have your say and complete the climate change survey. Climate change is one of the defining challenges of our time. Rising sea-levels, changing weather patterns, and more frequent, stronger, storms will impact our economy, our natural environment, and where and how we live. Complete the survey here.


Rautaki o te ao Hurihuri

The purpose of the Strategy is to ensure that we are doing the most important things first, to ensure that the resources (time, money, and people) we need are identified and are allocated where they should be, and to provide us with a way of measuring our progress. 

We are now seeking feedback on the proposed strategy. In particular, we want to know if you support the specific actions listed, and if there are other actions you think that we should consider.
