A Māori scientist and economist have been included on an expert panel charged with working out how New Zealand's vulnerability to climate change will be assessed.

Climate Change Minister James Shaw says the National Climate Change Risk Assessment will help prioritise what needs to be done.

He says the panel members come from a range of backgrounds, including research, engineering, and the public sector.

It will be chaired by Dr Anne Bardsley, led work in the Office of the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor on risk and emergencies.

The Māori members are Massey University social scientist and kaupapa Māori researcher Acushla Dee Sciascia, who is the co-lead for the Mātauranga Māori programme in the Resilience to Natures Challenges National Science Challenge; and Landcare Research resource economist Shaun Awatere, who has been working to improve the incorporation of Mātauranga Māori into local government planning by developing systems and processes to integrate Māori values into urban design and development.

The panel is supported by a small Secretariat based at the Ministry for the Environment.
