11IMPLEMENTATION AND REVIEW
TE MAHI O TE MAHI ME TE TIROHAKA HOU
This section of the Plan outlines the methods and processes Käi Tahu kiOtago will undertake and advocate for to achieve the objectives and policiesset out in Chapters 5-10 of this Plan, as well as the process for futurereviews of this Plan.
HE KUPU WHAKATAKI
Käi Tahu ki Otago considers that it is imperative to maintain and improve relationships with LocalGovernment Agencies, communities, local and national resource management consultancies andprivate companies in order to ensure better environmental outcomes and management of teao türoa. The establishment of high-level partnerships, joint management agreements, genuineworking relationships, and improved consultative processes is the means to achieving this goal.
11.2KÄI TAHU KI OTAGO PARTICIPATION AND INVOLVEMENT
KO TE URUKA ME TEMAHI KÄTAHI RAWA O KÄI TAHU KI OTAGO
Käi Tahu ki Otago participation and involvement in resource management promotes genuine workingrelationships between parties that should occur in the spirit of a Treaty relationship. Käi Tahu kiOtago involvement and participation in resource management should consistently and functionallyoccur at the level of partnership. Käi Tahu ki Otago want to develop partnerships and jointmanagement agreements with:•Otago Regional Council•Dunedin City Council•Waitaki District Council•Clutha District Council•Central Otago District Council•Queenstown Lakes District Council•Department of Conservation Otago Conservancy•Historic Places Trust•Central Government.Käi Tahu ki Otago encourage the use of Section 33 of the Resource Management Act 1991 whichallows local authorities to transfer any one or more of their functions, powers or duties to anotherpublic authority including an iwi authority. To date, local authorities have not transferred any of their powers, functions or duties to iwi authorities, although there have been requests.It is recognised that a greater role and higher level of participation will have implications for KäiTahu ki Otago such as human resources and financial capacity and will therefore need to beresourced appropriately by various partners.
11.3LEVELS OF PARTICIPATION
KÄ TAUMATA MAHI
Käi Tahu ki Otago participation in resource management varies in levels from merely beinginformed of decisions that have already been made (low participation) to working partnershipsbetween equals (high participation). While consultation has achieved some successful outcomes, there is now a need and desire tobecome involved in higher level partnerships, joint management agreements and decision makingin order to achieve the objectives of this Plan.
