Title of activity
Production of A State of New Zealand Report

Description of activity
The UNI steering group at the University of Auckland set about co-ordinating the production of a State of NZ Report in the absence of a commitment from government.

It relates to 11.3 in that the process has created a focus for a sizeable number of researchers and academics from across New Zealand who were willing and able to engage in the enterprise and who want to make a difference through their teaching and research and public good and service.

Changes that took place as a result of this activity
Before we undertook the activity, we did not know who would want to engage in the process; we didn't know which researchers and academics have been tracking the preparations for Habitat III and who is interested in being involved in follow up activities.
How the impact of the activity was measured
We have measured the activity so far in terms of the number of people involved in the production of the report. As yet it has not been widely disseminated.
