Review of Te Ture Whaimana

Vision & Strategy

The Waikato River Authority is seeking a partner contractor to carry out the review Te Ture Whaimana O Te Awa O Waikato review and has initiated a Request for Tenders process (RFT) for this contract.

Te Ture Whaimana o Te Awa o Waikato is the primary direction setting document for the restoration and protection of the Waikato River. This is to be reviewed.

Te Ture Whaimana (Vision & Strategy) was developed more than ten years ago following a Treaty Settlement process between Waikato-Tainui and the Crown to ensure the health and wellbeing of the Waikato River.

The Waikato River Authority is responsible for
the guardianship of Te Ture Whaimana, making sure it is relevant, effective and that its position as the primary direction setting document for the catchment is reinforced.

For the past ten years the Waikato River Authority has advocated on behalf of Te Ture Whaimana both with submissions on policy and legislation and working with hundreds of groups  funding $50 million of restoration projects.

The Waikato River Authority is required to periodically review Te Ture Whaimana, and having decided to proceed with the review, it is committed to a strong co-designed review process with River Iwi and the Crown.
