What do we do?

The Alliance is an open network. It brings its members together to make connections, share ideas, integrate activities and maximise activities.

It supports the establishment of new groups, and brokers assistance for them. It will help its members to tell their stories, and to operate with each other on a landscape scale.

It operates on a consensus basis, and members decide on their own activities.

Our services include:

  • Helping to set up catchment groups and facilitate meetings
  • Building and increasing the stock of resources, knowledge and expertise for participating groups
  • Linking communities and agencies engaged in the Wairarapa such as local and central government and industry bodies
  • Providing assistance with funding applications
  • Seeking out opportunities which stem from regional and national policies and projects, including the Ruamahanga Whaitua, PF 2050, A Billion Trees and the forthcoming NPS on Biodiversity
  • Communicating the work of the Alliance and promoting the telling of narratives that connect the Wairarapa and its various communities
  • Promoting the collection and accessibility of high-quality data relevant to the work of participating groups
