COMAR – CULTURAL OPPORTUNITY MAPPING, ASSESSMENTS and RESPONSES

STEP 6: Implementing responses

Plans and projects are developed to implement the responses that whanau believe will deliver the opportunities sought.

See Oranga Takiwa poster – this poster shows the projects that a whanau is planning to implement over the next few years.   The priorities were identified after whanau had completed:

  • River mouth surveys across all catchments in the takiwa
  • Culvert surveys – in one catchment, starting the second
  • CHI (in 2 catchments)
  • Cultural Flow Preference Studies  (in one catchment)

STEP 7: Monitoring

Maori are engaged in a number of monitoring programmes across New Zealand.   Many are actively developing monitoring tools and processes that are responsive to and underpinned by the values, practices and beliefs of their whanau.

See Nelson (2012) in the publications section.
