Climate Change Series: What Lawyers Need to Know (2): Key Considerations for Property and Resource Management Lawyers
In this second session of the five-part series, the presenters look at how climate change is affecting property investment decisions, the management of real estate assets and how tenant needs are changing.
This is followed by an analysis of the recent changes to the Resource Management Act, which will now allow the effects on climate change to be taken into account in land development, consenting and planning decisions.
The property and resource management strains are woven together by assessing how climate change, at a practical level, is affecting property values and how the Resource Management Act has to date grappled with matters such as sea level rise.
- Gain an appreciation of the speed with which climate risk is changing, and how this impacts legal and financial considerations.
- Become more familiar with financial disclosure considerations and their application.
- Become better apprised of your clients’ mitigation obligations, and hence the impact on investment decisions and due diligence.
- Get to grips with changes to the Resource Management Act 1991, which now require greater consideration of climate change. Understand how this can affect planning and consenting requirements for clients and their assets
