Saunders WSA, Kaiser LH. 2019. Analysing processes of inclusion and use of natural hazard information in iwi and hapū management plans: case studies from the Bay of Plenty. Lower Hutt (NZ): GNS Science. 20 p. (GNS Science report; 2019/03). doi:10.21420/6GFC-7G29.
This report provides case studies of iwi and hapū management plan's (IHMPs) inclusion of natural hazard information in the Bay of Plenty region by addressing the relationship between IHMPs, council policies and actions, and the accessibility of science knowledge to inform IHMPs. This report consists of three components, the fist provides an outline of th research methodologies, kaupapa Māori research principles, project design, participants and research questions (section two). The second, (section three) summarises the key research findings from an iwi/hapū perspective, council perspective and consultant perspective. Based on those findings, the final section of this report provides recommendations on how iwi/hapū and council relationships can be enhanced in the development and implementation of IHMPs to both better incorporate natural hazards information; and ensure that IHMPs are useful, usable and used by all parties.
