Impact 5: Track our progress

We're aiming to contribute to a bioheritage scorecard for Aotearoa New Zealand through national monitoring and reporting frameworks.

Intermediate Outcomes

  • Comprehensive biological heritage data and information, including taxonomy and distribution, are available at relevant scales and in real time to enable effects to be considered in management decisions across all environmental domains.
  • Baseline information on pressures, state and trends in New Zealand’s biological heritage is known, and data and information are accessible to all New Zealanders.
  • New Zealanders value, and are inspired and enabled to actively enhance and sustainably manage, our shared natural and cultural heritage.
  • The contribution of science to informed biodiversity policy, standards, regulations, investments and operational decision-making is improved.
  • Multiple ecological, social, cultural and economic values associated with biodiversity and ecosystem services are well understood by society.
