Council Projects

Carterton District Council has committed to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Climate change mitigation means reducing our greenhouse gas emissions. Climate change adaptation means adapting to the impacts of climate change such as increased flooding risks.

What can I do?

I am a resident

As a resident, there are many things you can do. A good place to start is to measure your carbon footprint to understand your greenhouse gas emissions.

      Ruamāhanga Strategy

      The Ruamāhanga Strategy outlines what meaningful action we can take to reduce the effects of climate change in their daily council operations.

      It was first adopted in 2020 and revised in 2021.

      • Volume 1: Strategy
      • Volume 2: Action Plan

      Wairarapa climate change projection

      NIWA and GWRC released their most recent climate change assumptions for Wairarapa in September 2021. Those assumptions help us understand what our Districts will look like depending on greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere.

      Winter is coming!

      And with it comes the frosty cold Wairarapa nights. A warm, dry home is not just more comfortable, it is also more energy-efficient and much better for your health. Assess your home for moisture, leaks, draughts, and more with our home health assessment toolkits. Borrow them for free from all Wairarapa libraries.
