Future Coasts Aotearoa (present to 2026)

Data from Cheri’s PhD will be used to inform a case study under this programme looking at impacts of sea-level rise in the lower Waikato River delta (Te Puuaha o Waikato). Additionally, the Swampfrog research team (Cheri, and Rangi) will be involved in broader work focused on impacts to Maaori in the lower River due to sea-level rise, and development of scenarios to assist low-lying communities and marae in their longer-term planning with climate change.
