We’re consulting on a joint think-piece underway with the Department of Conservation – our first Long-term Insights Briefing (LTIB).

Update – 15 November 2021: Feedback on the briefing’s proposed topic is now closed

All government agencies are now required to develop a Long-term Insights Briefing (LTIB) at least every three years. Briefings need to look ahead more than ten years into the future. The idea is for LTIBs to encourage national conversations about the biggest long-term challenges and opportunities for Aotearoa New Zealand.

Partnering with the Department of Conservation – Te Papa Atawhai, we’re proposing the following topic for our briefing: How can innovation in the way we use information and emerging technology help biodiversity thrive?

We’re suggesting our briefing focuses on two aspects that are part of this topic:

  • collecting and using data in more modern, digital ways
  • biotechnology for species management and protection

This is the first part of a two-stage consultation. We will consult on the draft LTIB itself early in 2022.

Any questions? Email our team before 5pm, Sunday 14 November.
