DIY Enforcement Frameworks
Overcoming complexity, capacity and capability

Protecting Auckland's biodiversity has required out-of-the-box thinking to overcome challenges from legislation limitations to in-field practicalities.

DIY your own enforcement model with these step-by-step instructions.

A case study in building graduated enforcement pathways by harnessing an array of legislation to overcome complexity and shortfalls in any one act or plan. 

See our CME framework in response to kauri dieback (plant-pathogens), built from upcycled and repurposed legislation.  Hear how we're applying lessons learnt to combat marine pests and diseases and threats to our pest and predator-free islands  in 'new' compliance challenges (marine & pathway biosecurity compliance).

From concept to implementation to measuring results.  Hear about the challenges, successes and opportunities for improvement.  See how Te Ao Māori and Mātauranga Māori have been woven into what we do, the results that follow may surprise you.

Legislation is focus: Resource Management Act (Auckland Unitary Plan, Regional Pest Management Plan), Biosecurity Act (Controlled Area Notices, Inter-Regional Pest & Pathway Management Plan), Local Government Act (Bylaws), Maritime Transport Act
