Land and Water Forum and Government Response

The Land and Water Forum was established in 2009 to bring together a range of industry groups, electricity generators, environmental and recreational NGOs, iwi, scientists and other organisations with a stake in freshwater and land management to develop a common direction for freshwater management in New Zealand. It consists of a Small Group with representatives from 23 organisations which met on a monthly basis and reported to the Plenary which had a membership of 67 organisations. Active observers from local and central government also participate in the Small Group.

The Land and Water Forum have released a number of reports, which can be accessed at the links below:

The Forum continues to provide advice to Ministers on water policy.
