In the “Taxon plan for Northland brown kiwi”
This section provides short-term direction for DOC and community group managers by identifying:
- What is going to happen
- Who is going to do it
- Where it is going to happen
- When it is going to happen
Three themes (management; community relations and engagement; research, monitoring and innovation) with a number of topics have been prepared. Each topic outlines issue(s) and objective(s), and presents an action table showing how to resolve the issue(s).
All action tables indicate which groups or individuals are accountable for the delivery of each action.
All actions have been prioritised and timelined. A summary table of actions is provided as Appendix 3. Action priorities have been assigned as follows:
- Essential: Needs to be carried out within the timeframe and/or at the frequency specified to achieve the goals for kiwi recovery over the term of this plan. Highest risk for kiwi recovery if not carried out within the timeframe and/or at the frequency specified.
- High: Necessary to achieve long-term goals. To be progressed and, ideally, completed within the term of the plan; with moderate risk if not carried out within the timeframe and/ or at the frequency specified.
- Medium: Necessary to achieve long-term goals. To be progressed within the term of the plan, but least risk if not completed within the term of the plan or within the timeframe and/or at the frequency specified.
No actions are ‘extras’—a medium priority does not mean that there are no reasons to do it. Priorities are given to assist with choice, if required.
Actions are predominantly timelined until 2014, except those relevant throughout the plan period. This reflects the increasing uncertainty in assigning timeframes beyond 5 years, and the need to review progress for all actions by 2014.
