Impacts of sea-level rise on the Avon River, Christchurch is a case study on the Christchurch City Council's response to flooding as a result of climate change. A study was commissioned in 2003 to look at how climate change impacts could be integrated into risk management planning for the Avon catchment. Changes have now been made to the City Plan and aspects incorporated into the Urban Development Strategy.
