Better management of complex freshwater processes through an interdisciplinary approach.

The Joint Institute will involve students and researchers in solving critical freshwater issues where interdisciplinary approaches are key to their resolution. Te Waiora’s students and researchers will be familiar with the interactions between science, human behaviour, economics and policy.

We will work together regionally and nationally with iwi and other stakeholders in strong mutually beneficial partnerships, where the freshwater management research outcomes are being achieved.
