This decade is crucial.

So are our collective next steps.

Three years have passed since we declared a Climate and Ecological Emergency in our district and our first Climate Action Plan was developed.

A lot has changed since then. The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated how interconnected humankind is and how we can all be affected by a global crisis. It has also shown how quickly we can adapt to change and find new solutions when we work together.

The scientific evidence for urgent climate action is clear. The International Panel for Climate Change documents how record levels of greenhouse gases and heat have shifted the climate into uncharted territory. The impacts of this change, such as record temperatures and unprecedented weather events and shifting climate patterns, are being experienced here and around the globe.

The draft Climate and Biodiversity Plan 2022 - 2025

This plan builds on our first Climate Action Plan 2019-2022. It sets out how we’re going to respond to climate change in Queenstown Lakes and touches on the progress we’ve made so far.

We began developing this plan in April 2021 and it has involved extensive engagement with a wide range of community groups, experts, not-for profit organisations, and partner agencies.

The draft plan has six outcomes and more than 60 actions, ranging from improving public transport to building food resilience, and many areas in between.

We want to know what you think of the plan. What do you like, and what can be improved?

    What are you going to do about the thousands of tourist arriving at QT air port every year, hiring camper vans and large SUV’s contaminating the air and burning thousands of litres of fuel?

    Frank asked 4 months ago

    Kia ora Frank, 

    Aviation and tourism are two of our biggest challenges for emissions reduction - aviation accounts for 17% of our district's emissions. Action 2.6 (page 49) is focused on reducing these emissions. We've also partnered with the Regional Tourism Operators to deliver a Destination Management Plan that aims to reduce emissions across the visitor economy, including encouraging visitors to take the bus and walk/cycle - for more info see actions 5.1 & 5.2 (page 57) and https://www.queenstownnz.co.nz/regenerative-tourism-2030/the-vision/

    We have a huge collective challenge ahead of us to reduce our district's emissions by 44% by 2030 - one that relies on collaboration and partnerships. We'd love to hear from you if you have any suggestions and encourage you to write a submission from 21st March. 

    Ngā mihi,

    Katherine - Climate Action Team
