AUCKLAND (Pacific Media Watch): With New Zealand’s 2017 general election two weeks away, Pacific Media Watch looks into the policies and stances of the country’s major political parties on climate change. Despite scientific consensus that sea levels are expected to rise by a maximum of 1.5 metres, which could displace approximately 1.7 million people in the Pacific by 2050, the issue of climate change has notably been absent in this year’s election campaign, particularly in the leaders' debates.
