Māori Policy and Agribusiness

This course examines the key issues and practice of Māori agribusiness policy. The roles and responsibilities of policy agencies in relation to Māori policy, research and development, implementation and monitoring relative to agribusiness are considered. Alternative policy approaches to achieving Māori driven outcomes are examined and presented. These processes will be discussed in context with Te Tiriti o Waitangi and natural resource management.

Course code
