Our Land and Water’s first wave of of research for Phase 2 of the Challenge (2019–2024) has begun, with five major programmes underway:

There are many projects yet to be developed, so there will be further opportunities for involvement over the coming months. Sign up to our newsletter for notification about opportunities.

Guide to Vision Mātauranga

The Guide to Vision Mātauranga was developed by the Rauika Māngai, an assembly of senior Māori representatives from across the National Science Challenges, for for the Aotearoa New Zealand science sector. It includes perspectives from Māori scientists, research leaders and programme managers.

Principles and Criteria

The Our Land and Water National Science Challenge recognises that in negotiating the complex economic, environmental, social and cultural dimensions of New Zealand’s land and water issues it needs to undertake its research in innovative and impactful ways. Our Challenge principles, criteria and expectations are intended to clarify our approach to science delivery.

Engaging With Te Ao Māori

Most Our Land and Water research has the potential to be informed by a te ao Māori lens. The inclusion of mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) can deepen our collective understanding of connections, interdependencies, and long-term intergenerational perspectives. Some resources that may help include:

Communications Resources

We've created a new Communications and Media Protocol for OLW researchers – please read if you're a current research team member. We've also created a Dropbox containing useful communication resources including:

  • OLW templates for posters and presentations
  • logos (OLW and partner organisations)
  • images you're free to use when presenting your research

Please contact Annabel for the Dropbox link.

Smartsheet

Our Land and Water currently uses Smartsheet to collate reporting information from research projects. Here are some tips for getting started using Smartsheet.
