The Kaikoura water management zone committee was launched in 15 July 2011 to begin addressing local water issues using the goals and methods developed via the Canterbury Water Management Strategy (CWMS).
Since forming the committee has received a number of presentations on water issues and freshwater biodiversity in the zone.
The initial focus for the committee was on coming up to speed on the state of the water in the region, cultural values, and the Canterbury Water targets.
In February 2012 the committee discussed its initial water management priority outcomes and the key pathways to achieve these in the zone.
The prioritiy outcomes feed in to the committee's water management Zone Implementation Programme (ZIP), which has been developed in conjunciton with the community to bring together water management recommendations which give effect to the CWMS.
The committee held a series of public meetings in March 2012 to get communtiy feedback on the water management priority outcomes, before releasing its draft ZIP for community feedback in mid-2012.
In November 2012, the committee presented a final ZIP to councils to be endorsed as the basis for the design and realignment of work programmes.
The focus for the committee will now be on working with the community and councils to implement the recommendations made in the ZIP.
Key priorities for the commtitee in 2013 also include engaging youth in water management, implementing catchment management solutions, and reviewing biodiversity work programmes.
