Holistic Decision-making Framework for Three Waters
Theuns Henning, University of Auckland
This four-year research programme aims to develop a holistic framework that integrates long-term Māori decision making principles and Treasury’s Living Standards Framework and enables decision-makers to understand risk, resiliency, and capture long term infrastructure management and development for three waters. This research will provide a framework to transform investment decision-making, forecast future investment needs and performance outcomes considering a wider range of non-asset variables for three waters.
Working with the Waikato Regional Asset Technical Accord (RATA) and the Waikato Regional Council as well as national data sets from Stats NZ and Land Information New Zealand, the ultimate aim is to build a framework and digital model that will allow the investment scenarios to be tested and optimised at a regional level, leading better community and environmental outcomes.
