Nelson Tasman GPI accounting project (2004-2009)

Nelson Tasman GPI accounting project (2004-2009)
This 5-year research project was part of the Motueka Integrated Catchment Management (ICM) research programme led by Manaaki Whenua (i.e. Landcare Research) and funded by the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology. Motueka ICM was an 11 year research programme which commenced in July 2000 and concluded in September 2011. The goal of this initiative was to conduct multi-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder research to provide information and knowledge that would improve the management of land, freshwater, and near-coastal environments in catchments with multiple, interacting, and potentially conflicting land uses. The Dynamic GPI accounting model was developed largely as a supporting theme within the Motueka ICM research programme.

This mathematical model building project attempted to create a spatially specific, dynamic Genuine Progress Indicator (GPI) accounting model for the Nelson Tasman regions and Motueka catchment of New Zealand. The economy environment model building research that led to the development of the Nelson Tasman Genuine Progress Indicator (GPI) Accounting Model started in Nelson and Tasman in 2004 through the efforts of Landcare Research, Massey University and Nelson City/Tasman District Council staff. While the working model was completed in 2009, the writing up of this substantive research programme continued into 2013 when the project science report was finally published.
