Te Rōpū Mātanga Tohutohu Māori mō ngā Kaupapa Wai-māori (TWWAG)
The Tāngata Whenua Water Advisory Group (TWWAG) is made up of tāngata whenua technical experts with a wide range of freshwater kaitiaki expertise and experience.
TWWAG was established by council in 2020 on the recommendations of Te Taitokerau Māori and Council to provide advice to council from a tāngata whenua perspective.
TWWAG’s focus is on the recognition of and provision for tāngata whenua rights, interests and responsibilities in relation to the Freshwater Plan Change guided by te Tiriti o Waitangi and tikanga Māori.
The group has provided detailed advice and recommendations for developing the draft Freshwater Plan Change.
