HOW TO CONTRIBUTE | BIODIVERSITY TOOL DEVELOPMENT


WHAT GOES INTO THE TOOL?   [Completed: March 2018]

Farmers, growers, industry bodies, biodiversity managers, advisors and consultants were invited to take part in our biodiversity tool survey to tell us:

  • What kinds of biodiversity they are most interested in

  • Which farm management actions are most relevant to them

  • How they would prefer the data produced by the tool to be managed.

HOW EFFECTIVE ARE MANAGEMENT ACTIONS? [Judgement scoring completed: May 2018]

A panel of biodiversity experts:

  • Reviews the best-available scientific evidence about how farm management actions affect the priority biodiversity groups identified by stakeholders.

  • Evaluates each management action for its effectiveness at enhancing NZ biodiversity.

 
 
 
 
 

IS THE TOOL USEFUL AND EASY TO USE? [In progress]

Farmers, growers, industry bodies, biodiversity managers, advisors and consultants:

  • Test a prototype tool that will translate the management actions they do into a wildlife-friendliness score for each biodiversity group they are interested in

  • Provide feedback on the tool that is then used to improve the tool and determine how the data can be used to efficiently meet different reporting needs
