In the South Pacific region we work on collaborative projects for ecological and societal responsibility. We focus on linkages between social and environmental systems, with integrated governance of land and water which is referenced to Pacific custom and support for ecosystems.
We ensure that indigenous knowledge and experience of the Pacific region is included in decision-making and projects, and engage with aspirations of Tangata whenua/Maori, Pacifica and Aboriginal peoples.
A priority reference is to kaitiakitanga as a system of care and governance in which social and environmental wellbeing are integrated. Ecology and ecosystems are another reference for responsible management and governance.
