The Ngā Repo Maniapoto project developed an inventory of wetlands for part of the Maniapoto rohe that lies outside of the upper Waipā catchment, in conjunction with the Tuhua Hikurangi, Mōkau ki Runga and Ngā Tai o Kāwhia Regional Management Committees.  The project led to the creation of a strategic framework based on mātauranga-a-hapū, values and uses, to direct restoration efforts of these important fisheries habitats both internally (i.e. Maniapoto) and externally (e.g. Waikato Regional Council).  The inventory and framework will enable Maniapoto to make effective and informed decisions when allocating funding to restoration efforts.
