OURS - The Manawatū Leaders' Accord

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

The Manawatū River Leaders forum have released its plan of action to improve the river and catchment over the next five years. This plan is a commitment by your Iwi/Hapū, 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.

Completed under the initial Action Plan

  • 98,595 plants planted along waterways with 4,200 planted at the source.
  • 326.8km of stream side fencing.
  • 98 Environmental Farm Plans completed.
  • 17 community projects completed.
  • Six waste water plants upgraded
  • 15 fish barriers to fish migration removed or fixed.
  • One of New Zealand's largest inanga spawning sites identified at Whirokino.

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.
