OURS - The Manawatu Leaders' Accord

The Manawatu River flows through all of us. It shapes our region and reflects our people. It is precious because it is OURS.

On Friday March 11th, the Manawatu River Leaders forum will release its plan of action to improve the river and catchment over the next five years. This plan is a commitment by your Iwi/Hapu, local government, industry, farming, environmental and recreational leaders to over 100 collaborative actions. It builds on work achieved under the first Action Plan launched in 2011 and we want you to be part of the journey as we work together to improve our river.

Kei te ora te wai,
Kei te ora te whenua,
Kei te ora te tangata.

If the water is healthy, the land and the people are nourished.
