Forum Strategic Plan 2014
This Plan outlines the strategic direction of the Kaimai Mamaku Ranges Forests Forum over a ten-year period (2014 to 2024).
Forum Operational Plan 2017-2022
This Plan identifies priority actions for the Forum to focus on for the next five years. It seeks to drive action, focused in areas where the Forum will have greatest impact – in other words: “what can the Forum do, as a collective, that no one else can do?”
This Operational Plan comprises:
• Three major collaborative projects, where the Forum can have the greatest impact.
• Four enabling actions to ensure the success of the Forum and/or associated projects.
Forum Sustainability Report 2017
The Forum has been in existence now for seven years. A Strategic Plan was adopted in 2014, however, a lack of progress, in terms on-the-ground action, seems to have stalled the Forum. This is not uncommon for multi-stakeholder community groups such as the Forum.
This review is timely to identify the barriers and opportunities to an effective and sustainable Forum. It includes recommendations on:
• the role the Forum can play in the future
• how to keep the forum self-sustainable and focused over the long term.
• the type of support and resources that will be required.
Many of the recommendations from this report have been incorported into the Operational Plan.
