Abstract

Over the last few years there has been significant advances in environmental monitoring using satellites, drones, and other detectors.  These technologies are rapidly dropping in cost and provide accurate and live feedback on the environmental impacts of Aotearoa’s agricultural and forestry industries.  Iwi are well-positioned to invest in these technologies and retrieve constant and live feedback on the mauri of whenua, awa, hapua, and moana.  With these technologies iwi could steer environmental policy-making according to their own values and lead the development of sustainable farming, fishing, and forestry operations.  Furthermore, such technology platforms create the foundation for next-generation green markets grounded in indigenous ethics.
