Successful Water Quality Symposium held at Te Papa - Video now available
On 3 April Motu, along with NIWA and the Land and Water Forum, held a symposium titled Markets and Water Quality to mark the conclusion of the bulk of the work done under a major grant from MSI. The symposium, held at Te Papa Tongarewa on Wellington’s waterfront, was open to the public, and featured recent policy-relevant work on water quality management in New Zealand. It provided a chance to hear sectoral, NGO, and government perspectives on the issue. There was a particular focus on the potential role for market-based instruments to improve water quality in New Zealand. The symposium was a chance for policy professionals, students, scientists, and interested parties to familiarise themselves with up-to-date research and information around preserving and restoring New Zealand’s water quality. Speakers included researchers from Motu, NIWA, Landcare Research and the Land and Water Forum, farmers, MPs, and representatives from the local and national public sectors.
