|The shift we are seeking:||Whānau are enabled to actively connect with and use their land for social, cultural and economic wellbeing|
Our goals for the next four years are that:
- whānau actively connect with and develop their land for their wellbeing; and
- the Ahuwhenua approach exemplifies excellence in Māori land use.
Over the next year we will develop legislative proposals to improve the Māori land system, so that Māori land owners are more easily able to use their land. We will collaborate across central and local government to improve the support and information available for Māori land owners.
We will partner with others to resource and implement a Māori land maturity model. We will ensure that our investment approach reflects the aspirations and interests of Māori land owners.
