Living at the water’s edge
Climate-safe ground for papakāinga and coastal communities.

In collaboration with Resilience to Nature’s Challenges, we bring you this online kōrero with Marama Pohatu (Muriwhenua Inc.), Akuhata Bailey-Winiata (Waikato University) and Tom Logan (University of Canterbury).

Most of Aotearoa’s marae and papakāinga are built along the coast or by flood-prone rivers. Climate change – like other historical upheaval – threatens to separate some of us from our papakāinga. But the concept of “managed retreat” – where whānau are supposed to leave hazardous areas and “start again” on safer ground – doesn’t sit well with people whose relationships stretch backwards and forwards over centuries.

These three speakers, including hapū-based researcher Marama Pohatu, are bringing many different kinds of knowledge to the complex question of where and how to live when our homes and marae are at risk from the rising sea.
