Preliminary estimate of the cost of the Essential Freshwater proposals on Māori land-use potential

Publication date:  May 2020
Publication reference number:  CR 420

This is the second of two Infometrics reports providing Māori economic impact analysis for the Essential Freshwater proposals. The report uses Māori-owned collective lands as a proxy for the Māori economy and estimates the potential profit-loss impact of the 2019 freshwater package (with a focus on dissolved inorganic nitrogen). See Essential Freshwater Costs Analysis (see Related publications below) dated 28 April 2020 base case results.

This report (report 2) sets out results of work to identify the loss of potential profit from optimal land use which is then analysed to determine the estimated impact of the proposed freshwater package.
