Community Assessment Panel Member – Takutai Kāpiti
- Community role.
- Coastal adaption recommendations.
- Kāpiti based.
The Takutai Kāpiti project aims to increase awareness of environmental challenges to our coastline and encourage the Kāpiti community to be a part of forming a response. To support the project, a Community Assessment Panel (CAP) made up of iwi partners, community, and other key stakeholder/ agency representatives is being set up.
The CAP will be a working group of local people and act as the formal mechanism through which wider community input, indigenous knowledge and technical expertise are used to develop coastal adaption options for the Kāpiti Coast District Council to consider.
Takutai Kāpiti is seeking six members to sit on the CAP.
To be successful in this role you will preferably have had previous experience working in a committee of volunteers and/or a community group setting. You will offer an ability to work collaboratively and constructively to achieve consensus in support of recommendations. You will be comfortable evaluating analytical information, decision making and participating in group or committee settings.
You will also have a special relationship and commitment to the Kāpiti Coast community and understand Māori language, tikanga, history and cultural values.
