Strategy & Action Plan for Waituna

A Strategy and Action Plan for Waituna has been prepared as the basis for discussion between all those who have an interest in the health of the Waituna catchment and lagoon.

One of the purposes of this Strategy and Action Plan is to provide a vision of the future state of the Waituna catchment and lagoon while also tracking the actions being undertaken by various parties in order to achieve that vision.
