Climate Change cluster

A group of Te Pūnaha Matatini investigators and TPM Whānau is working on climate change impacts, mitigation and adaptation across social and ecological spaces.

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing the planet. This cluster will bring together researchers from across Te Pūnaha Matatini to work across fields of expertise to make a real and measurable difference to understanding climate change impacts and find solutions. We will support research development processes and facilitate knowledge transfer. We aim to be inclusive and welcome input from all members of Te Pūnaha Matatini.
