  • We propose a Waka-Taurua as a metaphorical framework for facilitating the development of collaborative initiatives.
  • Systems which recognise Indigenous worldviews, tools and approaches equitably with EBM can be developed using this framework.
  • Multiple new and existing concepts, such as Two-eyed seeing and the Negotiated space, are applicable in the framework.
  • The New Zealand Marine Management System (NZ-MMS) demonstrates an applied example.
