Publication date:  December 2003
Publication reference number:  No number

This report assesses flood risk arising from possible future precipitation changes in Gleniti, Timaru, due to climate change effects. This report describes the projected climate change effects, discusses the outcomes of a re-worked flood model which takes into account these effects, and assesses the implications for two of the catchments. While this report is geographically specific in its scope, it is expected that many of the issues, challenges, and methodologies relating to coastal hazard planning within a climate change framework presented here will also be applicable in other regions and catchments.

The report was written by Opus International Consultants in conjunction with Timaru District Council.
