International effects of NZ climate change policy

Matthew Hooton made this Official Information request to Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

Response to this request is delayed. By law, Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet should normally have responded promptly and by (details and exceptions)

From: Matthew Hooton

Dear Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet,

On 14 July, I asked the Climate Change Commission for "all advice received by the Commission from MFAT and other sources on the likely effects of New Zealand’s climate change policies on the climate change policies of other countries, especially the top 20 global emitters; and what consideration the Commission gave to this matter before preparing its draft and final advice this year".

On 9 August, the Commission advised me that "it did not not consider the effects of New Zealand’s climate change policies on those countries’ policies" and that "[i]t is the responsibility of the Government of the day to set New Zealand’s climate change policies" so that "[t]herefore, the Government is best placed to assess the potential impacts of New Zealand’s climate change policies on other countries".

For your convenience, this correspondence can be found at https://fyi.org.nz/request/16073-interna...

Under the Official Information Act I request: all Cabinet and Cabinet Committee papers and minutes since the 2017 change of Government to today's date that consider the likely effects of New Zealand’s climate change policies on the climate change policies of other countries, especially the top 20 global emitters; and what consideration the Cabinet has given to this matter when forming, reviewing and setting New Zealand's climate change policies and negotiation positions for international conferences and other climate change diplomacy.

Thank you

Yours sincerely

Matthew Hooton
