Kauri Dieback Programme Annual Report 2015/16

The Kauri Dieback Programme was formed in 2009, bringing together tangata whenua from areas with naturally occurring kauri, the Ministry for Primary Industries, the Department of Conservation, Auckland Council and the Northland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty Regional Councils.

Since 2014, when the Kauri Dieback Management Programme's 10-year strategy was developed, the Programme has focused on four main areas of work.

  • Delivering effective operations: ensuring that resources are targeted at the right scale (whether that be whole landscapes, forests or stands) to the right sites (regardless of whether they are privately or publicly owned) and that the most effective mix of interventions is utilised (given the local context).

  • Building knowledge and tools: to makeus all more effective and efficient at managing the disease and its impacts.

  • Engaging and enabling people and communities: central and local government can't manage the disease alone – whole communities need to part of preventing the spread of kauri dieback.

  • Effectively managing the Programme: maintaining a culture focused on continual improvement and collaboration.
