“A tika transition to a low-emissions economy is one that embraces tikanga Māori as a source of solutions, upholds the principles of te Tiriti o Waitangi and is consistent with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples”. Associate Professor Maria Bargh, 2019, ‘A tika transition’, in D. Hall (Editor.), A Careful Revolution: towards a low-emissions future.​

This guide draws from Maria Bargh’s A Tika Transition (University of Victoria, Wellington) and supports action on the seven commitments outlined in the Funders Commitment on Climate Action. Note that in Hirini Moko Mead’s “take-utu-ea” approach, all three elements would be collaboratively discussed, developed and agreed by stakeholders. The approach has been adapted here for the purposes of this guide.
