Outdoor Recreation Research Agenda
We’ve released an Outdoor Recreation Research Agenda.
The Outdoor Recreation Strategy provides the strategic context for the Agenda, with the priorities and issues identified in the Agenda consistent with the strategy’s framework.
We also acknowledge that there are a number of other research agendas that have been or are being developed by organisations involved in outdoor recreation in New Zealand and this Agenda sits alongside these. We will review the Agenda after initial results come in that may confirm research gaps or identify new ones.
Who is it for?
The Agenda is intended to assist Sport New Zealand, other government agencies, outdoor recreation organisations, research institutions and researchers to work together to address strategic research topics and issues that will contribute towards achieving the goals of the Outdoor Recreation Strategy.
The objectives of the Agenda are:
- To identify and address the research needs of the Outdoor Recreation Strategy;
- To develop a coordinated and collaborative approach to addressing priority strategic research topics and actions to advance the Outdoor Recreation Strategy;
- To communicate and promote the strategic research needs of the Outdoor Recreation Strategy; and
- To improve the translation, communication and delivery of research to decision-makers and practitioners; to ensure that research is adding value to a range of audiences.
What does it aim to do?
The Agenda aims to improve coordination and collaboration of outdoor recreation research by identifying and focusing on major knowledge gaps and issues. The Agenda sets out an initial list of priorities and research topics for the next four years (2011-2015).
