Case study: Farming and forestry in Te Tairāwhiti

In this quick video filmed at Reporua, Uawa (Tolaga Bay) and Ruatorea, researchers Shawn Awatere, Tui Warmenhoven and Pia Pōhatu explain how climate change will increase big storms and coastal erosion in Te Tairāwhiti.

They discuss the need for these Ngāti Porou communities and landowners to consider how they could switch from sheep and beef and pine plantations, to more sustainable investments, such as indigenous forestry.
