Resource Management Partnership Programme

The New Zealand Association of Resource Management (NZARM) wants to build strong, enduring partnerships with like-minded organisations.

Our valued partners are:

Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research is the Crown Research Institute (CRI) for our land environment.

Our scientists undertake world-class science focused on four key areas

  • Enhancing soils, water and land use
  • Restoring biodiversity and beating invasive species
  • Climate action
  • People and environment

Highly collaborative, we work with expertise from across the science system and in government, business and community organisations to ensure our research and advice is impactful, relevant and useful.

Our Manaaki Taiao team works closely with iwi and Māori groups to support their goals for their land, and we incorporate science and mātauranga Māori into our research.  

Manaaki Whenua leads the creation and delivery of public data for the land environment through tools such as S-map Online, the Land Cover Database and national biological collections.  These underpin decision-making for sustaining our land and natural resources.
