The Ministry for the Environment commissioned this research to identify perceived barriers to the adoption of any of the three mechanisms proposed in the draft plan change for the Tutaekuri, Ahuriri, Ngaruroro and Karamu catchments (known as ‘TANK’).
This plan change require farmers, growers and foresters to agree work (with the Council) that is required on their properties through one of the following mechanisms:
- an individual farm plan
- an industry programme
- by working collectively within local catchment collectives.
