separately bookable workshop
Frameworks for local council managing Iwi engagement
26 September | 9.00am - 12.30pm

Many councils are trying to balance multiple responsibilities relating to Māori provisions in the Resource Management
Act, Local Government Act, Marine and Coastal Area Act and Treaty legislation. With the new reforms, councils must be
aware of their new obligations for Māori engagement. This workshop will discuss a range of methodologies, tools and
frameworks to follow to enable effective Māori engagement in a challenging post-settlement environment.

  • Managing post Treaty settlement expectations (e.g. implementing co-governance, protocols and joint management agreements)
  • Developing enduring relationships
  • Best practice for integrating district plans with settlement legislation/issues
  • Acknowledging cultural diversity when engaging with Māori
  • Balancing the expectations of multiple Māori entities
  • Developing robust policy and resources to achieve collaboration
