Ko Papa Ko Rangi: Up or Down?
Reframing the Costs of Climate Change
Work is underway across Aotearoa to quantify the costs of climate change, including the costs of adaptation or of failure to adapt.
But how do we understand “cost” and will our economic paradigm really lead to effective climate adaptation? If we can’t or don’t quantify/consider some costs of climate change (and benefits of adaptation!), how can we ensure these are factored in our adaptation decisions?
On the one hand, we need frameworks and tools that help us analyse our adaptation decisions (and indecisions). On the other, we need to consider the paradigm driving our current thinking, and the limits of current economic tools and frameworks to help us make collectively oriented, intergenerational decisions.
Are we capable of making decisions that return to Papa and Rangi value greater than what we have taken?
What is a rolling symposium?
This rolling symposium consists of preliminary podcasts, culminating in an all-day event, to generate evidence-based conversation around the economics of adapting to climate change. In order to build towards an inspiring, productive and free-flowing conversation at our all-day event, we ask that you listen to each podcast wherever you get your podcasts (or catch up below, prior to the full day event).
We have now finalised our Ko Papa Ko Rangi programme. Please explore the full programme now, with some extraordinary keynotes and panelists and, of course, you!
Four-Part Podcast Series: Pre-Symposium Listening!
As well as right here, you’ll find these podcasts wherever you get your podcasts! Be sure to subscribe for further content to be released down the track.
Registrations are fully booked out. (We will be releasing videos of our keynotes and panels after the event, via our YouTube channel).
