Abstract

This paper concerns the development of a just and effective environmental legal system in New Zealand, one that is justly based on the Treaty relationship, and that effectively creates good environmental outcomes. The author first lists the basic requirements of a just and effective environmental legal system in regards to the Treaty of Waitangi, Māori environmental law, and sustainable development. The article then goes into detail as to what principles can guide environmental law to achieve these requirements.

Keywords: Environmental Law, Treaty of Waitangi, Treaty Obligation, Sustainable Development, Tino Rangatiratanga, Tangata Whenua, Whanaungatanga, Mana, Kaitiakitanga, System’s Approach, Community Input, Primacy of Process.
