Aim: To present case studies of iwi partnership programmes by Mana Whenua representatives. It will include a workshopping element to encourage participants to look at their own mahi and how they can meaningfully give effect to Te Mana o te Wai.
- Examples/case studies by significant iwi/hapū Rangatira are given on projects with stormwater outcomes (both urban and rural examples).
- Attendees have workshopped Te Mana o te Wai in context to their own mahi and are left with a greater operational understanding.
- The significance and benefits of partnering with tangata whenua is understood as a necessity, ‘not a nice to have’.
