Revisiting Ko Papa Ko Rangi


Climate change adaptation is often reduced to a question of monetary-based questions. Why did we let development happen in a risky area in the first place? How much would it cost to protect communities in place now, versus thinking in a longer-term way about where communities might feel and be safest?

But what happens when the most important things to us don’t have a price tag? How do we make sure the things we value most, our connections to whenua and tipuna, are properly factored into the decisions of governments and businesses?

With so much emphasis on the fiscal costs of adapting to climate change, or not adapting, we are losing important elements that should be included in that conversation.
