Programme Coordinator / Kairuruki Hōtaka at Ministry for the Environment, Flexible
Mō tēnei tūranga mahi | About this role
The environmental management system includes the laws and institutions that influence our relationship with the environment. It covers everything from our natural resources to the way we build our towns and cities. In the broadest sense, the system includes anyone making decisions which affect the environment.
At the heart of the system is the Resource Management Act (RMA). Since the RMA was introduced in 1991 the economy has grown significantly and the way we use our land and other resources has changed. In July 2019 the Government announced a comprehensive review of the RMA. Delivering the Government reform programme is a major focus for the Ministry.
The RM Reform - Transition and Implementation (T&I) team plays a key role in delivering the major reform work currently underway, with a particular focus on the transition to, and implementation of the new system.
