Is ODESC looking at climate change?

Alex Harris made this Official Information request to Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

Currently waiting for a response from Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Alex Harris

Dear Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet,

Climate change is widely considered to be a risk to national and international security, and many of its effects - floods, droughts, international instability - fall squarely within ODESC's ambit. I'm wondering therefore whether ODESC has, or has had in the past, a watch group dedicated to climate change, and if so, how many times and on what dates it (or they) has (or have) met.

I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the fyi.org.nz website.

With regards to s12 of the OIA, I am an NZ citizen and in NZ.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Harris
