The Climate Change Commission is going online to catch the views of coastal Māori on draft proposals to address climate change.

Deputy chair Lisa Tumahai says many Māori in remote communities are the first to be affected, but their voices are usually not heard because they don’t want to write submissions, they rely on their iwi to reply for them, or they don’t get the message.

The first campaign, 100 coastie, is aimed at the East Coast with radio spots and a 12-minute survey that can be filled in online or on a phone.

"We've stripped out the components of the Climate Commission's draft report specific to Māori and created an online survey where they can answer some questions and give some narrative responses to certain things we think are more specific to hapū, iwi and hapori," Ms Tumahai says.

A similar survey is being developed for Ngāi Tahu kainga in Te Waipounamu, and Ngāpuhi and Waikato Tainui have also expressed interest.

Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: I am honestly not sure who is advising Minister Kelvin Davis, but his surprising decision this week to attack People Against Prisons Aotearoa (PAPA) and refer their pamphlets calling on prison reform to the Police for supposedly inciting the prison riot at Waikeria prison is such a desperately wrong footed move one is left wondering what on earth he thinks he's doing.
