NOTE: The above map and the charts and other information below on this page show the government bodies (local, state, country) that have declared a Climate Emergency. Climate Emergency Declarations by non-government bodies and non-binding declarations, including the May 2 UK declaration, are on the Non-govt CEDs map.

New Zealand

Note that the above map and the global ICEF list below show only those local councils that have passed motions that include an item declaring a Climate Emergency (or acknowledging or noting in some way that we face a Climate Emergency). But as part of this growing wave of more ambitious climate action, a number of other councils have also passed motions committing to stronger than action than previously. See those councils here.
