A Regional Council Special Interest Group workshop was held in Wellington 20-21 July 2017. The workshop provided an opportunity for SIGs to share their current thinking on key strategic issues and research needs, but also to workshop issues that have been identified as important to SIGs and councils. In particular, the workshop explored the role of Matauranga Maori with council science; ideas for improved science communication to stakeholders; and also the opportunity to identify knowledge gaps and areas where SIGs should be working more closely together. There is a report of Action Items that arose from the workshop, and it is currently in draft format. Workshop presentations and SIG strategy updates are also available.
