Climate Change – Iwi Leaders Group (regional hui)

3
206

The Climate Change Iwi Leaders Group (CCILG) invites Maori Trusts and Incorporations, Whanau and Hapu to attend one of a series of regional hui to discuss the following important issues for Maori.

  • an update on the development of the CCILG;
  • an update on what has occurred in the climate change area as it effects Iwi/Maori in the last 18 months;
  • Proposed Crown / Iwi (CCILG) next 12 to 18 month work program and;
  • a review on the recently released ETS Review and discussion on potential changes in legislation.

These discussions will be of particular importance to our Maori farming and forestry industries, although the effect of these will also reach to other sectors and directly to our communities. We will be also holding a National Hui on Climate Change to present the findings from the regional hui and to discuss our position for any future climate change related legislative changes from the Government.

Authorised by Dr. Apirana Mahuika, Chair of the Iwi Leaders Group on Climate Change

The Iwi Leaders Group on Climate Change was established in October 2007 to support Iwi, hapu and M?ori land owners to participate in the policy development preceding the two ETSs, engage with the Crown on the shaping of the schemes, and, more recently, support participation in New Zealands delegations to the international negotiations.

  1. Until Te Arawa get back to acknowleding the ARIKI & THE RANGATIRA as 1st & 2nd in authority, an example set by Tamatekapua & Ngatoroirangi – there will be little and NO CHANGES – Climatewise. Bring in the ORDER of the YOUNG Chiefs on council. We never had “MALE DOMINATED” Kaumatua councils in our history!! This needs a radical change. Lets educate ourselves on history – for there lies the TRUTH for re-assertion.I expect a reaction to the arero korero I bring, thats 4shore!! Where are the Challengers?? Where is leadership that speaks out PUBLICY?? They (the above mentioned trusts etc) are all hiding behind eachother.

  2. Being the brown-wash for free market solution to fix climate change problems created by the free market is intellectually unsound. Corporate Maori participation in the emission trading scheme that has condemned the Pacific? Why would some Maori support the Dairy industry that has been irresponsibly polluting our rivers and environment before the lives of our cousins in Tuvalu, Kiribati, Tokelau and the other many small island communities in the Pacific?

    Putting the interests of the dairy industry and tribal capitalists out to make a quick buck before the lives and homes of small island communities should be condemned around the Pacific and by Maori who believe in the values of whanaungatanga and whakapapa.

    Whats worse is the ETS fails to protect the most vulnerable Maori communities from the effects of climate change. Maori communities will suffer because of poorer existing housing and community infrastructure, and economic reliance on threatened fishery and shellfish stocks. The further loss of cultural taonga will also be hard for iwi and hapu to bear.”
