Whakawaiwaitia te reo kia kōrero
Whakawaiwaitia te reo kia tika
Whakawaiwaitia te reo kia Māori

Hei huia kaimanawa māu,
Mā tō whānau, mā tō iwi anō hoki.

NPM applauds the Waitangi Tribunal’s landmark report calling on the Government to act urgently to address the nation's ongoing governance of water rights, which is in breach of Te Tiriti o Waitangi / the Treaty of Waitangi principles.

The Tribunal released its report yesterday with a clear finding that the Resource Management Act is not consistent with Treaty principles, and calling for a new national co-governance body to be established for freshwater - highlighting the need for the Crown to recognise Māori proprietary rights and economic interests in water.

Climate change is one of the most serious global health threats of the 21st century.
