Expert panel appointed to assess NZ climate change risks

New Zealand’s government has appointed Anne Bardsley, a University of Auckland research fellow, to lead a national expert advisory panel on climate change risk assessment.

The nine-member panel will analyse a range of climate risks and provide a preliminary report to the government by June. Bardsley previously worked with the Office of the Prime Minister’s chief science adviser and led policy development on national risk and uncertainty.

Announcing the appointments on 9 April, climate change minister James Shaw said the expert panel would create a risk assessment framework to “enable comparisons of a broad range of risks” and identify areas for future research.
