Verse of The Day
“Kia mahara ehara nga mea pirau, te hiriwa, te koura, i te utu mo koutou, i puta mai ai i a koutou ritenga tekateka i whakarerea mai e o koutou matua; Engari he toto utu nui me te mea no te reme kohakore, pokekore, ara no te Karaiti.” (1 Peter 1:18-19)

Meeting the challenges of development pressure, ownership, and climate change

Introduction

I was originally asked to give a paper on climate change and coastal governance. I have gone a little broader, and this paper that looks at some of the fundamental problems in New Zealand coastal governance that make it difficult to deal with a number of challenges, including the serious challenge from climate change.

This paper identifies the fundamental problems in coastal governance that have become apparent over 20 years of practice; examines the evolution of the coastal governance regime to see how those problems arose; and then proposes some reforms that would enable New Zealand to meet coastal governance challenges into the future.

I joined the Department of Conservation (DoC) in 1988 from the Water and Soil Division of the Ministry of Works and Development, and was there for the transition from the Harbours Act 1950 to the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA), before working at local authority level with the Kapiti Coast District Council and then as an independent coastal management consultant. This paper identifies the fundamental problems in coastal governance that have become apparent over 20 years of practice; examines the evolution of the coastal governance regime to see how those problems arose; and then proposes some reforms that would enable New Zealand to meet coastal governance challenges into the future.
