RMLA Queenstown : Introducing the concepts of Hauroa and Te Mana o te Wai for resource management practitioners


RMLA Queenstown Lakes-Central Otago (in conjunction with NZPI) are pleased to invite you to a challenging and inspiring presentation by Ailsa Cain. Ailsa is the principal advisor of Kauati – a specialist policy and research consultancy based in Queenstown.  The presentation will introduce the concepts of ki uta ki tai, hauroa and Te Mana o te Wai and outline how these concepts sit within freshwater management.  Using a recent case study, Ailsa will present three key understandings from the Environment Court to show how these concepts are being acknowledged and understood locally.

Ailsa presents with experience on this subject, having worked with Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu  and Te Ao Marama on waimaori and in developing the Murihiku version of Te Mana o te Wai. She has been an expert witness for Ngāi Tahu on Te Mana o te Wai and ki uta ki tai, and presented to MfE on the matter.  (Please note that Ailsa is presenting her own opinions, not on behalf of Ngāi Tahu.)  Members should expect an educational presentation followed by an open and informal discussion amongst attendees to raise questions and discuss ideas in more detail. The presentation will be suitable for those new to the topic and will challenge those with experience in freshwater matters.
