Dynamic Dashboard

There are 600,000 hectares currently used for pasture and exotic tree plantations in Tairāwhiti. What happens on this land has huge consequences for local jobs, indigenous biodiversity and income for landowners.

We’ve created a dynamic dashboard for Tairāwhiti residents to explore land use scenarios for the region. Getting the mix of land use right is really important, but we currently don’t have a good grasp on the impacts of those decisions or agreement about what the best mix should be.

The dashboard lets users see what happens under different land use and market scenarios. The land use allocation and market allocations will result in one of six scenarios. We’ve listed the pros, cons and risks of each scenario – and represented these in graphic illustrations.
