Harmsworth presents a detailed exploration of Māori values in the context of land use planning, contributing significantly to the field of resource management in New Zealand.

The work provides an in-depth analysis of how Māori cultural perspectives and traditional knowledge can be integrated into contemporary land use practices and policies. The research involved working closely with representatives from five iwi: Ngāti Porou, Rangitane, Ngāti Tuwharetoa, Te Whānau-ā-Apanui, and Ngāi Tahu. The article outlines key Māori concepts related to land, including spiritual, cultural, and historical associations, and how these can inform sustainable land use strategies. Harmsworth emphasises the importance of recognising and respecting Māori values, which encompass a holistic approach to the environment and its resources. Harmsworth’s research contributes to the development of comprehensive Māori value datasets and models, enhancing the integration of cultural information with biophysical, economic, and social data for more effective planning and policy formulation. The work is notable for its practical approach to incorporating indigenous values into land use planning, offering guidance to planners and policymakers in New Zealand.
