Resource Management reform project: working paper 3 published
EDS has published the third in its series of working papers relating to its Reform of the Resource Management System.
Working Paper 3 considers:
- Māori and a future resource management system: the Treaty, tikanga, ecosystem-based management and power sharing
- The rationale for the system (when public intervention is appropriate)
- The roles a future system needs to play
- A framework for institutional design
- Exploring the characteristics of resource management institutions
- Institutions in a future system
The paper also touches on the operational features of a future system organised around the concept of “planning”, and incorporates four think-pieces commissioned from external experts. Three concern the role of the economy and economic instruments, and one concerns compliance, monitoring, enforcement and evaluation.
Work on other operational features – plans, funding, permitting and behavioural incentives – is ongoing.
