Request for Activator(s) – Biodiversity Collective Impact Initiative

Do you believe in collaboration to create collective outcomes for our environment? Are you driven by building connections with others that leads to a strategic approach for increased restoration and biodiversity?

Waikato Regional Council, the Department of Conservation, University of Waikato and Trust Waikato have joined up to undertake the process of establishing a collaborative strategic approach to support communities in the Waikato working to restore and enhance our biodiversity through a collective impact model. Based on similar models throughout the nation (eg. Taranaki Mounga Project, Reconnecting Northland), these partners are focused on creating a more aligned approach to biodiversity and restoration in the Waikato region that leads to impact.

Restoring nature and connecting communities is central to the work of the Waikato Biodiversity Collective Impact (CI) initiative. We are focussed on working together effectively to achieve long term outcomes for the Waikato Region that contribute to a sustainable future, not just for our environment, but also for our communities and our economy. CI is the long-term commitment of parties to a common agenda. For us this common agenda is the protection, restoration and the enhancement of our biodiversity in the Waikato region.

We are looking for a skilled person or persons to lead this process who has experience in bringing together different ideas, organisations and communities to work together to achieve collective impact.  The service provider will manage and facilitate the collective impact process, and eventually, will have a small team they will work with to deliver the initiative outcomes focused on community needs. The service provider would have experience in facilitation, change management, collaboration for joint outcomes, programme management, iwi liaison, stakeholder engagement, relationship management, and effective communication.  Experience within the local and regional Waikato context is preferred, particularly with an emphasis in working with iwi and tangata whenua within a co-governance environment.

Welcome to the Waikato Biodiversity Forum

 

The Waikato Biodiversity Forum is a partnership between community groups, landowners, iwi, research and government agencies to help halt the loss of biodiversity in the Waikato region


It is a voluntary network which operates independently of the management agencies. The Forum believes that no one agency, sector or element of society has all the answers to the biodiversity issues we face nationally and in the region.

The Forum speaks on behalf of biodiversity. However it does not necessarily reflect the views of all Forum members on every biodiversity issue.
