New Zealand boasts a rich biodiversity and has a thriving tourism sector based on the sweeping landscapes that characterize the country.1 Thus, the government and the Ministry of the Environment are very concerned with how climate change will negatively affect the countryâ's environment.2 New Zealand could see rising average temperatures, a rise in the sea level, irregular rainfall, and an increase in storms. In order to plan for and mitigate these effects, New Zealand has begun developing adaptation and preparation plans to the infrastructure in order to minimize the results.3 By 2050, the temperature will rise by more than 1 degree Celsius and there will be hotter summers and much colder winters.4 The water resources in the country will diminish resources in the North and ...See More East and drastically increase in the West.

Over the past 20 years the government has transformed New Zealand from an agrarian economy dependent on concessionary British market access to a more industrialized, free market economy that can compete globally. This dynamic growth has boosted real incomes - but left behind some at the bottom of the ladder - and broadened and deepened the technological capabilities of the industrial sector. Per capita income rose for ten consecutive years until 2007 in purchasing power parity terms, but fell in 2008-09. Debt-driven consumer spending drove robust growth in the first half of the decade, helping fuel a large balance of ...See More payments deficit that posed a challenge for economic managers. Inflationary pressures caused the central bank to raise its key rate steadily from January 2004 until it was among the highest in the OECD in 2007-08; international capital inflows attracted to the high rates further strengthened the currency and housing market, however, aggravating the current account deficit. The economy fell into recession before the start of the global financial crisis and contracted for five consecutive quarters in 2008-09. In line with global peers, the central bank cut interest rates aggressively and the government developed fiscal stimulus measures. The economy posted a 2% decline in 2009, but pulled out of recession late in the year, and achieved roughly 2% per year growth in 2010-12. Nevertheless, key trade sectors remain vulnerable to weak external demand. The government plans to raise productivity growth and develop infrastructure, while reining in government spending.
