The changing nature of water management in New Zealand
5:00 P.M. on Thursday, July 17th, 2014
Triple B's (121 Scurfield Blvd)
As a country, New Zealand has an abundance of freshwater resources per capita. Although a small nation, the water management system to date has lacked any real integration.
New Zealand is now in a transitory phase in relation to its water management. The central government has taken steps to implement national-level planning instruments, and regional authorities are now charged with implementing these.
This presentation will provide an overview of water management in New Zealand, using the Waitaki River as a case study of past issues and future potential.
To register, email email@example.com
by noon on July 16th.
There is no registration fee, and food and drink can be purchased from Triple B’s Regular Menu
