Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the Government will declare a climate change emergency. This declaration is non binding, but Ardern says the motion intends to hold the Government accountable and recognises they are taking the issue seriously. 

Jess Hopkins talked to Doctor Julie MacArthur, a Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Relations, and Public Policy at the University of Auckland, about this declaration and key environmental policy issues facing Aotearoa. 

First up, Dr Julie MacArthur discussed her research into environmental programmes and climate resilient infrastructure, and what needs to be done to reduce emissions.
