Introduction to the
Tika Transition
for Philanthropy

The process of getting to our collective, low-carbon future is just as important as the end goal.


Across the globe we are seeing further commitments towards justice and equity within actions and visioning processes.

Here in Aotearoa, we must join this commitment and maintain closeness to our history, our land and our people by centring tikanga Māori and Te Tiriti o Waitangi. A Tika Transition is what justice looks like in Aotearoa.

It is about what is right, and as we commit to stepping into our future together we are bound to one another by this.










Whanaungatanga embraces whakapapa and focuses upon relationships. Individuals expect to be supported by their relatives near and distant, but the collective group also expects the support and help of its individuals. 

Kaitiakitanga is the exercise of environmental guardianship.  In the tika transition context, kaitiakitanga ensures climate transition strategy and policy considers all resources and peoples, significant to place. 


The concept of utu or balance rests on the idea that ‘for everything given or taken a return of some kind [is] required’. 

This is a fundamental component of Mead’s take-utu-ea, the analytical template utilised in this resource.

Mana has to do with the place of the individual in the social group. Personal and group relationships are always mediated and guided by the high value placed upon mana.





Tika concerns ‘that which is right or just’. A tika transition captures everyone as potential actors towards rightness or justice, and what is right will look different for each individual and collective according to their position within the addressed issue. Hirini Moko Mead discusses the process, take-utu-ea, where take (the issue) is identified as a breach of tikanga, or what is right. 

Utu (recompense) becomes a motion toward balance, and ultimately

ea (resolution) is found when stakeholders are satisfied.

An exploration of climate change through numbers, acts of complicity, and injustices experienced at the distribution of its effects.

Actions towards balance, on international, national and local scales. 

Resolution and the full realisation of commitments made by signatories.
