This pathway aims to drive the assessment and implementation of data, monitoring and evaluation needs for PF2050. The 5-year Pathway Action Plan is broken down into two themes each with its own milestones and associated actions:

  1. The PF2025 interim goals and needs of the PF2050 Collaborative groups
  2. Needs of Community groups / the wider PF community/network.

Simply put, “measuring and assessing” the success of PF2050 might be boiled down to two key indicators:

  1. Predator numbers over time, tracking down to zero
  2. Biodiversity over time, tracking upward toward goals outlined in Te Mana o te Taiao, the Aotearoa New Zealand Biodiversity Strategy.

However, each of those indicators will have multiple associated measures, each with its own data collection and management requirements.  Work is ongoing with the other collaborative groups to develop a workable approach.

Further detail on this pathway’s outcomes, its milestones and measures of success are set out in the 2020-2025 Pathway Action Plan.
