Forest & Bird quits water forum

From Nine To Noon, 9:38 am on 7 March 2017

Forest & Bird is pulling out of the Land and Water Forum, saying the government has largely ignored the forum's advice on fresh water standards, coming up with its own "timid" plan. The forum was established nine years ago - bringing more than 50 groups from industry, iwi, science and the non-governmental sector together to make reccomendations to government on water standards. Kathryn Ryan speaks with Forest & Bird CEO Kevin Hague.
