Te Kaahu o Tuawhenua
This Newsletter provides information about research Manaaki Whenua has developed with the Tūhoe Tuawhenua Trust. Trust members have actively contributed to setting research directions, developing funding proposals and initiating research with Manaaki Whenua on Trust forests.
The research investigates activities that could provide multiple benefits to the Trust beneficiaries, such as:
- Forests generating economic benefits from timber production;
- Improved environmental benefits through strategic weed and pest control;
- Enhanced satisfaction from utilising mātauranga Māori on rongoā, mahinga kai and whakairo; and
- Utilising assets for the social development of people.
