Is He Waka Eke Noa considering wetlands and their regeneration or preservation as carbon sinks?

Not yet. Wetlands can be a source of emissions as well as storage areas for emissions. The complex biological dynamics of wetlands mean that there is not always a straightforward way of knowing whether an existing, or proposed wetland, will remove significant amounts of carbon from the atmosphere.
Further work is occurring in this space and wetlands could be included in the future once this information is available.
