An Investigation of Alternative Funding and Incentive Mechanisms to Support Implementation of WSUD in New Zealand: Activating WSUD for Healthy Resilient Communities

Author Published Date Read Publication

There are significant challenges in securing funds for stormwater managers to address the costs of operating and maintaining desired levels of service, and for planning future growth while meeting community aspirations for the quality of the environment.

This report documents Aotearoa New Zealand and Australian case studies and also highlights commonalities and lessons learnt relating to implementation of the identified funding and incentive schemes internationally. The main premise behind any funding strategy should be that of “polluter-pays”. As such, councils should look to leverage other government organisations to provide funds as a cost-share for the benefits they receive from the green infrastructure. Finally, any funding strategy should encompass fee credits and/ or programme incentives to assist in creating behavioural change within the community and increase awareness of stormwater effects.
