Rural Women New Zealand has been at the heart of several projects to manage the effects of land use in order to protect our waterways, through our involvement with the NZ Landcare Trust.
These projects have highlighted the importance of working with communities to find local solutions to local problems.
So a new publication just out from the Trust – Rural Catchment Management: A guide for partners – will be a welcome new tool in the box.
The guide covers common themes that run through successful catchment management projects, with a focus on effective community consultation.
