NIWA (National Institute of Water & Atmospheric Research)
Delivering science that supports New Zealand
NIWA is New Zealand’s leading provider of climate, freshwater and ocean science, delivering science that supports New Zealand’s economic growth, enhances human well-being and safety, and enables good stewardship of the country’s natural resources and biodiversity. NIWA works with businesses, organisations, and central and local government to help them understand their climate risks. We assess risk to infrastructure, help with land use planning and can advise on adaption strategies and resilience building.
At Fieldays we will be exploring how science can find new ways through climate change and how people can contribute. The effects of climate change will be felt differently throughout New Zealand. On the NIWA stand you can explore what climate is predicted to look like at your place and what you might do to respond to these changes.
