We share knowledge and bring expertise together to uphold the mana of water for Aotearoa New Zealand
Following last week's UN Water Conference in New York, Aotearoa NZ's Permanent Representative, Carolyn Schwalger said traditional knowledge and scientific research can work hand in hand to deliver powerful outcomes.
The statement said that now, more than ever, concerted international cooperation is needed to ensure we better understand, value, manage, and integrate our approaches to water.
As part of this, Aotearoa New Zealand supports the proposal for the appointment of a UN Special Envoy on Water.
The latest state-of-our-waters report shows why we really need Three Waters reform. It's partly because there are still some pretty grim numbers, but also because there are welcome signs the reforms we already have are starting to make a difference.
PFAS can be measured at all stages of the water cycle here, from wastewater to drinking water. Even though the aquatic concentrations in New Zealand were low compared with other countries, the numbers are still concerning because PFAS bioaccumulate and biomagnify; they build up in our bodies, environment, and food web.
