The vision for this research is to identify a greater range of suitable land opportunities and a greater diversity of benefits for New Zealand.
A large team of researchers from multiple institutes and scientific disciplines produced these datasets as part of the Land Use Opportunities: Whitiwhiti Ora
research programme funded by the Our Land and Water National Science Challenge
. The datasets were created between 2020 and 2023, to provide information on social, environmental and economic costs and benefits of a range of land use options. If you have any queries about the data, please contact the named person in each dataset.
