PPC Speaker Series: Water

Following an interesting an informative event on Auckland Transport in Semester One, the Public Policy Club hosted a second Speaker Series in Semester Two. The topic for the evening was New Zealand’s water policy: “we’re proud of our environment, our “100% pure” image, and fresh water matters to us. But conversations on the topic can be confusing and complex. How do we ensure the quality of our freshwater estate on the one hand, while balancing development interests and 3 Waters infrastructure affordability on the other?”

Three speakers gave substantive discussion on this topic: Sir Peter Gluckman – Chief Science Advisor to the Prime Minister, Malcolm Alexander – CEO of Local Government New Zealand, and Raveen Jaduram – CEO of Watercare.
