Hauraki Waikato MP Nanaia Mahuta says it's important to find solutions for Kawhia that focus on the whole harbour.

Ms Mahuta was at Waipapa Marae in Kawhia today for a hui bringing together Waikato, Maniapoto, Ngati Hikairo and Ngati Maniapoto to discuss issues around claims and how the interests of the various hapu and iwi fit in.

She says parts of the harbour are showing the impacts of land use, erosion and climate change.

She says that's of concern to all with connections to it.

"Kawhia has historically been a food bowl for the waka so the health of the harbour matters and also what happens on land because the tributaries leading into the harbour affect the health of the harbour as well so we just want Kawhia to be a future resource to enable the whanau to get kai and to look after the area.," Ms Mahuta says.
