Auckland's Climate Action Plan

Climate Emergency

Auckland should declare a Climate Emergency status along with some other cities around the world (e.g. London). Adaptation (resilience) is now No 1 priority, not mitigation (sustainability; 'emissions reduction'). We have only 5 to 10 years to make the vital transition to a more resilient model of infrastructure - decentralised, clean, green, smart, small scale, locally managed. The Unitary Plan should be reviewed and its 'compact city' strategy and 'intensification' policy moderated, if not abandoned.
