The National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2014 (NPS-FM) requires regional councils to make decisions about fresh water in their regions, often based on uncertain information. This guide provides practical considerations, principles and methods to help regional council staff identify, assess, communicate and manage uncertainty in freshwater management. It may also be useful for iwi and hapū or community participants in regional freshwater planning processes to better understand these issues.
