Annual Report 2018
As the Crown Research Institute for our land environment, biosecurity and biodiversity, our role and responsibility are clear: Our Land, Our Future. This land, and everything that shares it with us, is our future.
Our role is to ensure that all New Zealanders have the knowledge, understanding and tools to truly live in harmony with our land: enjoying its many gifts, preserving its unique diversity, and enriching it through our creativity, care, industry, and culture.
We present our Annual Report in two parts. Part 1 provides an overview of Manaaki Whenua, highlights of our science that show the contribution we are making towards our four ambitions for New Zealand, and an update on the progress we are making in delivering on Strategy 22, our 5-year strategy. In Part 2 we present our directors' report and financial statements.
