The Ministry for the Environment and the Ministry for Primary Industries have now released the Essential Freshwater work programme. This two-year programme is outlined in the report, Essential Freshwater: Healthy Water, Fairly Allocated, and will be jointly delivered over a two-year period by a cross-government taskforce. This taskforce will be assisted by Kahui Wai Māori, Freshwater Leaders Group, and the Science and Technical Advisory Group.
Regional development is economic development within a defined geographic (or other) area. Like economic development, it requires you to know where you want to be, or what you want to achieve.
Often it involves understanding where you currently are, your resources and areas of comparative advantage, and the environment that you are operating in.
BERL has detailed regional datasets that can identify what is happening in your regional economy – past and present. We can even provide scenarios on how your regional economy might look at some point in the future.
Applying frameworks that incorporate latest thinking and approaches, we can work with you to achieve your regional development objectives.
If you wish to find out more, we are more than happy to talk to you.
