Healthy Waterways Register
The Healthy Waterways Land Management Actions Register is for all land holders, land managers, kaitiaki and catchment groups who sustainably manage their lands.
This register is New Zealand’s national database that allows you to record and report land management actions that help improve waterway health. Knowing the extent of these actions at catchment level will allow us, eventually, to link the actions done on land to improved water quality outcomes.
The register presents information at a catchment scale, recognising the confidentiality and privacy of individual property owners. It is also set up to receive data from catchment collectives, industries and councils. Compiled catchment information will contribute to a new module being developed for the Land Air Water Aotearoa (LAWA) platform.
This webinar provides the opportunity to learn more about how to utilise this tool to support your strategy.

We can grow a much greater range of food and fibre in New Zealand. But what will grow well, where?
The Data Supermarket is a new online storehouse of data about the ingredients, food and fibre we can grow in New Zealand, now and in the future.
This reliable and robust data is freely available to everyone planning or providing advice on land-use options in New Zealand. The wide range of new datasets provide a broad understanding of the benefits and consequences of many land use opportunities.
A large team of researchers from multiple institutes and scientific disciplines produced these datasets as part of the Land Use Opportunities: Whitiwhiti Ora research programme.
This information is now accessible at landuseopportunities.nz
The LandscapeDNA information hub gives you access to interactive maps that allow you to explore land right down to property scale, and understand which contaminants are most susceptible to loss, how they travel, and where they end up.
These insights allow farmers to identify actions they can take to minimise water contamination risks from their property.
In this webinar, you will learn to use LandscapeDNA to identify key water quality contaminants for a farm and the contributing catchment area, match land management and intervention actions to the contaminant flow pathway, and explore the actions library for more information on mitigations.
