A new freshwater institute bringing together the National Institute for Water and Atmosphere NIWA and the University of Waikato is to have a strong iwi focus.

Waikato-Tainui College for Research and Development is a partner in Te Waiora, which will be based at the Hamilton campus.

Science and Innovation Minister Steven Joyce says the institute will be a world-leading centre for interdisciplinary freshwater research and teaching.

It will encompass sciences, engineering, management, law, economics policy, matauranga Maori and education.

Mr Joyce says Te Waiora will also identify new insights into Maori traditional rights and responsibilities in relation to water, and enhance public awareness and engagement in freshwater issues.

Waikato is already New Zealand’s major tertiary sector provider of freshwater research, while NIWA is home to the National Centre for Freshwater and Estuaries.

MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: If we look at the opinion poll stats 6 months out from the last 3 elections, National over poll by a significant percentage, Labour over poll by a smaller percentage, the Greens are static and NZ First rises when Labour's vote collapses.
