Māori and Iwi development

LINZ is helping Māori and iwi access information that can better inform decision making on their land and natural resources.

Business with Māori describes Land Information New Zealand’s (LINZ’s) way of working with Māori and iwi in strategic and targeted ways to accelerate Māori and iwi development.

The Māori economy is a significant contributor to New Zealand’s economy. Land is fundamental to supporting Māori economic, environmental, social and cultural development. A lot of Māori land is currently under-utilised or unproductive, so LINZ is helping iwi and Māori achieve their aspirations for their land.

How does LINZ support Māori and iwi development?

LINZ holds land and location based information covering all of New Zealand. We are in a unique position to help Māori and iwi better understand their land, through accessing and understanding information that supports decision making about land and asset use.
