The aim of this project was to help the Department of Conservation improve the way in which it plans for and seeks public input into the review of statutory management plans, by modelling best professional practice and using critical reflection. This included a cycle of action, reflection and assessment of the way in which the Department plans for and enables public involvement in the statutory review of Conservation Management Strategies (CMSs).
The project acknowledges the importance of public contribution to conservation management planning and the critical role of the Department’s staff in enabling public input. It also aimed to improve the Department’s decision-making ability and to build public participation capacity.
The report has four sections:
- Section 1: The engagement story is summarised as a Programme Logic diagram, to show what processes were used to engage the public in decision making
- Section 2: The engagement stories of Northland and Canterbury Conservancies are described and evaluated
- Section 3: References
- Section 4: Glossary
