OraTaiao - December 2022 Newsletter

on 9 December



Kia ora Friend --

The end of another significant year for climate action in Aotearoa is approaching. It is an auspicious time to reflect on the many happenings of 2022, and plan for the year to come. 

With the recent conclusion of COP27 came the first ever mention of the human right to a healthy environment and food security in a cover decision, agreed on by all parties. Yet, COP27 failed to deliver a pathway to avoid 1.5°C warming. Despite this, we remain optimistic for the coming year and the numerous opportunities to improve climate-health outcomes in Aotearoa. 

As always, we are immensely grateful for the support of our members - thank you for your contributions that have fuelled OraTaiao this past year. We hope that you get some long-awaited rest over the new year, and we look forward to seeing you in a strong year of climate advocacy in 2023. 

Mauri tau,

Dermot and Summer,
Co-convenors, OraTaiao: NZ Climate & Health Council
