Multilateral assessment process New Zealand

The first multilateral assessment (MA) of New Zealand took place at the Working Group Session (WGS) under the SBI 41 in Lima on 8 December 2014. The aim of this session was to assess New Zealand's progress in implementation towards the achievement of emission reductions and removals related to its quantified economy-wide emission reduction targets.

The WGS was preceded by a three-month period of questions and answers in the lead-up to the SBI session in Lima when the MA took place.

Questions to New Zealand were submitted via the MA-Portal from 1 to 30 September 2014. 

A compilation of questions to New Zealand was published on 1 October 2014 and was replaced with a full  compilation of questions and answers (514 kB) on 29 November 2014. No further observations were received from New Zealand two months after the MA session.
