Report: TR 2014/60

Author: J Henry

About this report

The Waikato Economic Joint Venture Project was set up to undertake studies to support and inform decision making by central government, local government and the wider community on the economic consequences of different choices in setting freshwater objectives and limits in the Waikato and Waipa river catchments.

The studies aim to provide high quality analysis to add to the understanding of economic, environmental, social and cultural values of fresh water. The studies will inform an approach to support the Healthy Rivers Plan for Change/Wai Ora project and the way ahead for managing fresh water in the Waikato and Waipa river catchments.

The purpose of the ‘Waikato and Waipa River Iwi Values’ paper is to provide a review that collates and documents available information from existing studies on values that the five Waikato and Waipa River Iwi (Tūwharetoa, Te Arawa, Raukawa, Waikato-Tainui, Maniapoto) hold in relation to the Waikato and Waipa river catchments.
