Submission on Te mahere urutaunga ā-motu (tuhinga hukihuki): Draft National Adaptation Plan

 

Resolution number WTK/2022/53

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson G Presland, seconded by Member M Allen:  

That the Waitākere Ranges Local Board:

a)          welcome the opportunity to provide feedback on Te mahere urutaunga ā-motu (tuhinga hukihuki): the draft National Adaptation Plan.

b)         support Auckland Council in its commitments under Taruke-a-Tawhiri (Auckland’s Climate Plan) and is pleased that this plan shows that the government is taking climate change seriously.

c)          note that it is clear - following successive consultations, replacement of local seawall infrastructure, and the recent severe weather events and flooding in the Waitākere Ranges Local Board area - that the need to prepare for its effects, and the urgent need to reduce carbon emissions is already a high priority for our communities.

d)         welcome the focus in this plan on equity to ensure that the greatest burdens of climate change are not imposed on those least able to afford them.

e)          accept that responsibility for the costs and risks associated with climate change adaptation will be shared between asset or property owners, their insurance companies, their banks, local government and central government, and is pleased that the plan recognises the key role played by local government, being at the front line of climate change adaptation.

f)           urge that the above be taken into consideration as part of the review of local government and other aligned reforms to ensure that our model for local governance will be fit for purpose, ensuring a fair, equitable and consistent approach to climate mitigation across all parts of Aotearoa/New Zealand, noting that there is potential for rural or outlying communities across the greater Auckland region to be proportionately disadvantaged as agencies try to find a way through this.

g)         note that in recent years the local board replaced an eroding sea wall in the coastal settlement of Huia, on the Manukau Harbour, and is cognisant from this example that helping communities though the impact of sea level rise will be incredibly costly and engagement intensive.

h)         note that local government has neither the short- nor long-term financial resource to deal with this issue on the scale necessary.

i)           request that to ensure a fair, equitable and consistent approach to climate mitigation across all sectors and all parts of Aotearoa/New Zealand Central Government must provide clear, bold and decisive leadership, decision-making and funding to put systems and processes in place.

j)           agree that developing a legislative framework for managed retreat is seen to be a critical action within the national adaptation plan, noting additionally that the plan needs to acknowledge the significant emotional impact that this will have on local communities.

k)          strongly support an approach that recognises the importance of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and has partnership with Māori as a key focus.

l)           note with concern the impact of climate change on the natural environment. This is an area where local boards can and do play a part locally, through funding and implementation of various initiatives relating to environmental restoration – particularly around our waterways and coastal areas, protection and enhancement of indigenous biodiversity, protection against wildfires and eradication of pest species.
