Description

Why a forum on adaptive governance?

Erosion, freshwater pollution, pests and other environmental problems are complicated, multidimensional, and often long term and slow-burning. We argue that traditional approaches to solving environmental issues are not working.

Three years ago, we set ourselves the ambitious goals of changing the way New Zealanders think about and act on environmental problems. We developed a toolkit to help make progress toward the long term goals of ‘healthy land, healthy rivers, healthy people’ as part of the “Weaving the Korowai of Papatūānuku - Adaptive governance and enhanced decision-making” research programme. This programme is a partnership between Scion and He Oranga mo Nga Uri Tuku Iho Trust in Ruatorea, East Coast.

We test a series of adaptive governance tools for environmental problem-solving using the example of a severe erosion problem on the East Coast but applicable to other problems such as biosecurity risks, freshwater management, and in general to how people and agencies operate. This research programme ends in September 2018 and we are sharing a toolkit and lessons in this forum.

What is this forum about? - A toolkit for action

We would like to share the tools and lessons learnt from the programme, invite your input and identify collaboration opportunities across institutions and sectors for follow up activities. In this forum we will learn from and workshop about:

- ‘Catchment 2030’ – Serious games to address wicked problems

- Social networks to build social capital, identify and help leverage leaders and influencers

- Frameworks to monitor progress and change for long term environmental issues.

Who is this forum for?

Community researchers, practitioners, planners, local and central government learning and development specialists or professionals who are motivated to scale up lessons, use and adapt our tools.

Please join us for this learning and sharing day in Wellington and share the invitation across your networks.
