Mitigation Information

  • For information on New Zealand's Climate Competiveness Index, click here. You will need to select New Zealand from that page, since it is not possible to link directly to a country's information.
  • An EarthTrends country profile on Climate and Atmosphere for New Zealand is available here.
  • The most recent national communication from New Zealand on the steps taken to implement the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change contains a huge amount of information on both adaptation and mitigation in New Zealand; it also includes a summary of greenhouse gas emissions. Much additional information is available on the UNFCC site; some relevant information is described in the UNFCC overview on the COMPON website.
