Theme: How is research helping with the BIG resource management questions?
The 2006 ICM Annual Meeting is the annual opportunity for researchers and
project partners to share progress with each other, and understand the big
picture for the Motueka catchment and for transferability of our research.In line with our resource management theme, we focus this year on the big
questions around river gravel management, catchment impacts on Tasman Bay, and
reviewing how ICM research is progressing on the big issues in the Motueka, all
of which exist in other NZ catchments.Please see the general description below and the specific agenda, which is
attached, and mark your calendar accordingly.
