Te Au o Te Moana | Special webinar series: Improved decision-making for the moana

Ecosystem-based management (EBM) is a dynamic approach emphasising processes alongside outcomes, and which is constantly evolving rather than being a static endpoint.

In this webinar, we acknowledge the existing ways in which the moana is centred in decision-making and extend this to consider possible structural changes to embed EBM principles into our marine management. 

We emphasise co-governance, collaborative decision-making and the importance of scale (spatial and temporal) as key elements to ensure and enhance the implementation of EBM. 


Karen Fisher (University of Auckland), Beth Tupara-Katene (Awatea Consulting), Elizabeth Macpherson (University of Canterbury) Lara Taylor (Maanaki Whenua Landcare Research), Dan Hikuroa (University of Auckland), and Joanne Ellis (University of Waikato). 

It will finish with a short Q&A. 

This webinar is second in a special 6-part series following the cancellation of our 2022 conference Te Au o Te Moana – The Voice of the Ocean.

A recording of this webinar will be made available on our YouTube webinar playlist within 48 hours of the event.
