Maori disproportionately hit by climate change

From Waitangi Day 2020, 9:34 am on 6 February 2020

The Iwi Chairs Forum Climate Change Leaders Group, with Mike Smith at its help, recently launched a climate change case against several New Zealand major companies. Our panel looks at how Maori vulnerability and susceptibility to the effects of climate change can be mitigated, and what work is being done by Maori to make that happen. Mike Smith is spokesperson of the Iwi Chairs Forum Climate Change Leaders Group, Mere Mangu is chair of Te Runanga o Ngapuhi and Kera Sherwood O Regan, from Ngai Tahu is a human rights advocate and climate change campaigner.
