PM plugs 1BT to UN
Wednesday 13 Oct 2021
Not only did she talk about New Zealand’s efforts to combat climate change but she told delegates about the One Billion Tree Programme initiated by the previous Forests Minister Shane Jones.
‘As we mitigate, we must also adapt. This year New Zealand conducted its first national climate change risk assessment to tell us where to focus our effort, and within two years we will have a national adaptation plan. But we have already begun our journey. New Zealand has a programme to plant for instance, one billion trees by 2028. This will store carbon, but it will also support forest resilience, prevent erosion, improve biodiversity, and support our rural and indigenous communities.’
