Practical options for the adoption of ecosystem services thinking and methods by Māori communities in New Zealand
Special issue on ecosystem services (report 6)
This report focuses on practical considerations associated with the possible role of ecosystem services as a contribution that assists in reclaiming, reframing and reinstating the mana of the Māori cultural economy (transl. Te Iho Matua, Te Aho Matua whānau o Rangi rāua ko Papatūānuku). We explore this topic by: (i) introducing key issues linked with the adoption of ecosystem services thinking and methods by Māori communities, (ii) describing criteria that can be used to assess the potential for adoption of ecosystem services and (iii) outlining what we think are the practical options for adoption activities.
