Dr Helen Ritchie
Helen is from New Zealand. She was the process facilitator for a 2.5 year consensus-seeking process to develop water quality objectives and rules for the Waikato River catchment. This is the longest river in New Zealand and it is now being managed under a co-governance framework between five river Iwi tribes and the regional government. She facilitated a multi-stakeholder group of 24 people representing different interests in the river.
