Today the Minister of Local Government announced the future direction for the Three Waters service delivery component of the Three Waters Reform Programme – to introduce legislation to create four publicly-owned water entities.
The Ministry for the Environment has launched a consultation titled ‘Transitioning to a low-emissions and climate-resilient future’ to hear New Zealanders’ views on what should be included in the Government’s Emissions Reduction Plan. The scope of this proposed Plan is enormous – we can expect its implementation to have profound effects on the way Kiwis live, work, and get around Aotearoa New Zealand.
The Infrastructure Commission, Te Waihanga has just released its Draft New Zealand Infrastructure Strategy. This was developed following consideration of submissions received during their public consultation as well as stakeholder engagement, international and domestic research, and the results from the online Aotearoa 2050 survey.
Join Kath Ross, Interim General Manager - Transitions at Taituarā, who will lead this free webinar and summarise the key messages within The Future for Local Government Review Panel's first report Ārewa ake te Kaupapa.
