An opportunity to work together.

Mana Whakahono ā Rohe provide an opportunity for tangata whenua (through their iwi authority or hapū) and local authorities to work together on environmental issues.


To guide the way – to improve working relationships and to enhance Māori participation in resource management and decision-making processes.

This guidance is for everyone – including local authority staff, tangata whenua, and their respective elected representatives.

The tohu design is a stylised view looking into a kete. The green, blue and orange represent the three baskets of knowledge. The different weave strands represent the strands of tangata whenua and local authorities who will establish a Mana Whakahono ā Rohe.

The central area of the kete represents the environment; protected and nurtured within the basket. The weave comes together representing strength of collaboration and shared knowledge between the parties to create an outcome with the environment and the parties’ on-going relationship at its heart.
