The draft National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management (NPS-FM) includes a policy to improve the protection of wetlands – specifically that “there is no further loss or degradation of natural inland wetlands.”
The NPS-FM requires all regional councils to include a policy in their regional policy statement to the effect that “the loss or degradation of all or any part of a natural inland wetland is avoided. Alongside this is a specific requirement that councils identify and map their natural inland wetlands to at least 500m², which is a finer resolution than most councils have undertaken to date.
This RFP relates to helping improve our understanding of the extent and location of New Zealand’s remaining wetlands (including smaller degraded wetlands on private land) to aid and improve policy implementation, monitoring and compliance, and to also increase our capability for environmental reporting.
