Resource Management Reform Project releases Working Paper 1
EDS has released its first working paper as part of Phase 2 of a Law Foundation-funded Resource Management Law Reform Project. The project is taking a first-principles look at how New Zealand’s resource management system could be improved.
This working paper looks at criteria for reform, and concludes by offering three alternative sets of criteria that could be applied: a “progressive” set, a “transformational” set, and a “market-led” set. It does not yet select one of them – this is a task for the next stage of this work.
Phase 2 of the project will culminate at the end of the year with the release of a final paper, which will describe a preferred model and a pathway to implementation over time.
This project is being funded jointly by the NZ Law Foundation and Michael and Suzanne Borrin Foundation up to $240,000
