Moana Ola Pasifika Public Health Network

Moana Ola Pasifika Public Health Network wants to see New Zealand prioritise the health of Pacific peoples, Māori and all vulnerable groups in setting and meeting its national climate change commitments. 

They are concerned about Pacific peoples, Māori, and vulnerable populations suffering disproportionate health and social impacts from climate change. They also recognise that there are many potential co-benefits for health and equity through action to reduce emissions. Their submission advocated for an emissions reduction target of at least 40% below 1990 levels by 2030, and a goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.
