Reform of the Resource Management System: The next generation (working paper 3)

By Greg Severinsen and Raewyn Peart
September 2018

The purpose of this project is to take a first-principles look at the resource management system in New Zealand and to outline options for reform. This is the third in a series of three working papers generated by the project. A final synthesis report was published in December 2018.

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 in a future system
