Climate change impacts on erosion and sediment loads in New Zealand

Processes like erosion are harming land and ecological habitats by reducing soil resources. Climate change and land use are the main factors contributing to erosion and increased sediment loads in our rivers.

This info sheet is for those interested in the future implications of climate change on erosion and sediment loads in New Zealand, as well as policymakers, catchment managers, farmers and landowners who rely on data for informed decision making.
