This work is underpinned by data collection, including several major nationwide surveys.
Development of effective policy entails designing, undertaking and evaluating engagement processes and strategies; understanding preferences, values and governance processes for natural asset management; assessing information to underpin choices and decisions; designing policy instruments and their implementation; and tracking policy performance to enable adaptive management.
Our research spans urban, rural and conservation landscapes and catchments, the full-range of ecosystem services and natural resources, and a wide array of stakeholders – central and local government, industry, NGOs, community and Māori organisations.
