Native Affairs – Koiwi Panel

By Native Affairs

The Resource Management Act was introduced in the early 90s to promote the sustainable management of resources. 

Since then it's had 19 amendments and it's most significant reform is underway.

We wanted to ask the Environment Minister Amy Adams how these changes will affect Iwi consultation and whether they'll prevent situations like that at the Masonic Tavern in the future but she was too busy to appear. 

Joining Mihingarangi Forbes in the studio are RMA consultant Buddy Mikaere and Iwi consultant Eru Thompson.
