This pathway aims to deliver a shared agenda to drive the work needed to enable PF2050 to move from sustained predator control to eradication. A strategic roadmap will be created, which will allow for prioritisation of eradication projects based on several criteria. The “information for decision” ensures we have the right data to allow for assessment, ensuring the best investment decisions are being made. Modelling will be one of the tools to help us determine the greatest likelihood of success, and to compare eradication projects. 

This pathway also focuses on ensuring all parties working towards PF2050 understand the work and capacity requirements and will develop a plan to scale up and address these.  It will also focus on creating job opportunities for rangatahi.    

This action plan is based around three themes each with its own milestones and associated actions: 

  1. System change 
  2. Information for decision 
  3. Delivery method. 

Regional collaborations between hapū, iwi, councils, DOC, community groups and private landowners/farmers will drive progress through developing shared local approaches to predator control. Lessons learnt at project level will be shared across the system to ensure we are operating effectively at a national level. 

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