Webcast : RMLA Fresh Water Road Show : Queenstown

The new National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management and National Environmental Standard for Freshwater require practitioners to re-conceptualise the place of water and ecosystems, with implications for how we manage land, waterbodies and receiving environments to improve freshwater health.  From farming to provision of stormwater infrastructure to land use in or near wetlands, everyone whose practice touches on freshwater management will need to be aware of the requirements of these instruments and associated changes to the RMA.

RMLA/Te Kahui Ture Taiao is pleased to present the second of a two part seminar and livestream that examined some of the issues arising out of the NES and NPS.

Each session will cover different aspects of freshwater management.  This session in Queenstown addressed:

  • Timing for implementing the NPSFM 2020, and relationship with other national direction
  • An understanding of the fundamental concept of Te Mana o Te Wai, and its articulation in Southland
  • Management of diffuse discharges in a lake catchment context
  • Panel on farming matters including intensive winter grazing and Freshwater Farm Plans
