Sustainable Catchments

We know that healthy freshwater and strong ecosystems underpin New Zealand’s sustainable future. That’s why we’re committed to the efficient use of water and working with our communities to improve the health of the country’s waterways.

Collaboration is a core part of our action plan for water and our sustainable catchments work is one example of bringing this to life.
