National Council of Women New Zealand

The National Council of Women New Zealand (NCWNZ) is an umbrella group representing 288 organisations affiliated at either the national level or to one of its 21 branches. Its function is to promote the interests of New Zealand women through research, discussion and action.

NCWNZ wants to see New Zealand be a world leader in setting ambitious goals for lowering emissions. They are concerned about New Zealand (and the rest of the world) undergoing more of the floods, landslips, heat waves, droughts and wind storms that are becoming increasingly frequent. 

Their submission advocated for putting a cap on the expansion of the coal and gas extraction industries, as well as the dairy industry.
