This paper presents the findings of the Ministry's analysis of how New Zealand’s 2030 climate change target compares to other countries’ targets and the goal of limiting temperature rise below 2°C. The paper was originally completed in May 2015 and served as an input to advice to Ministers for their decisions on the target in June-July 2015.
The paper has been updated to incorporate Australia’s 2030 climate change target that was announced subsequent to the original drafting of this paper.
