Te Waihanga releases report on water infrastructure


The New Zealand Infrastructure Commission, Te Waihanga’s latest discussion document highlights the importance of current reforms in the water sector.

Its State of Play discussion document about water infrastructure is one of a series looking at the current state of key infrastructure sectors. These are based on a review of existing literature as well as interviews with experts in the sector.

Chief Executive Ross Copland says this is part of Te Waihanga’s work toward a 30-year strategy for infrastructure and the Commission is seeking feedback on the document.

Te Waihanga has already published state of play discussion documents on telecommunications and energy infrastructure, as well as a discussion document setting out its framework for analysing infrastructure.

Over the coming months it will share reports on the waste and resource recovery, transport, and social infrastructure sectors. Te Waihanga will also be holding public consultation later this year. This work will inform a draft 30-year strategy to be presented to the Minister for Infrastructure by September 2021.
