Southern South Island New Zealand faces complex developmental challenges across environmental, social and economic disciplines. The Central Otago Lakes Region is one of New Zealand's fastest growing urban areas, while the Southland Region faces widespread land use change. Catchments Otago aims to help support equitable and appropriate land and water management across these landscapes.
