Research and evaluation underpins all our programmes and initiatives. It allows us to examine attitudes, ascertain the nature and extent of risky behaviour and by whom. Most importantly, it gives us an evidence base on which to make recommendations, develop tools and initiatives for specific at-risk groups, activities and environments.

In this section you will find a collection of national and international research, and articles, offering a sound source of information and evidence across a wide range of environments, age groups and activities, reflecting access to, and use of, water in New Zealand.
