This report fleshes out the detail of a new consensus for a major reform of water laws and practices in New Zealand, forum chairman Alastair Bisley says. The breadth of this consensus provides a once-in-a-generation chance to resolve the entrenched problems surrounding fresh water. The forum is recommending integrated decision-making in catchments, continuous improve- ment of management practices and clearer rights to take and use water within set limits. The forum proposes a col- laborative approach at both natio- nal and catchment levels to set and implement objectives for waterways, prescribe limits for takes and discharges where these are required, and to find fair, efficient and accountable ways to implement the limits. Good management practice by land and water users is the basic tool. Incentivising it is the pre- ferred approach. Regions are accountable for managing within limits. Industry schemes, catchment-wide initiatives and regulation may all help to ensure the limits are achieved within the agreed timeframes, Mr Bisley says. Water available for users once limits have been set should be allocated with long-term economic welfare in mind. All authorised takes should be brought progress- ively within the allocation system. Iwi rights and interests were not part of the forum s mandate, but the group notes that for a stable and durable system of water management, iwi rights and interests need to be resolved. We believe most New Zealand- ers will agree, if they are sure that there are bottom lines which pre- serve the health of our water and human health, that water quality will improve over time and that outstanding waterways will be protected. The Land and Water Forum is an independent body which the Government asked to provide a consensus view on how to improve the management of New Zealand s freshwater resources.
