EDS National conference, 8-9 June 2009
SKYCITY Convention Centre, Auckland, New Zealand

New Zealand's environmental management institutions were largely established during the late 1980s, as part of the broader governmental reorganisation of that time. More recently, concerns have been expressed about the ability of these institutions, both national and regional, to effectively address current environmental and infrastructural issues facing the country.

These concerns have led, for example, to the appointment of the Royal Commission on Auckland Governance, to calls for a unitary authority to be established in the Far North, and to various proposals for the establishment of new national bodies such as a Coastal Commission, an Environmental Protection Authority and a Ministry for Sustainable Development.

Reform in Paradise will focus on critically examining how well New Zealand's current environmental governance structure is performing and how it might be strengthened in the future. It will review current initiatives and proposals to modify our environmental institutions as well as experiences and initiatives from other comparable countries. In particular, the reforms to New Zealand's environmental institutions proposed by the National-led government will be fully considered and tested at the conference.

The conference will be designed to be both informative and provocative.  EDS will be commissioning one or more think-pieces, which will be released prior to the conference, to help frame the conference deliberations and stimulate constructive debate.
