|Abstract: ||The Pressure-State-Response framework for environmental reporting was used as a
basis to develop a long-term study of people’s perceptions of the state of the New
Zealand environment. A postal survey of 2000 people, randomly drawn from the New
Zealand electoral roll was used to gather data – an effective response rate of 48% was
achieved. A range of different resource sectors was examined. We report on New
Zealand’s air, native animals and plants, and marine fisheries, as well as New Zealand
compared to other developed countries. Respondents generally considered that in
terms of pressures, states and responses, New Zealand was performing better than
other developed countries and that for the resources examined here overall
performance was in the adequate to good range, except for marine fisheries. The
survey appears to be a useful tool for linking perceptions data into State of the
Environment reporting. It also helps identify policy issues where perceptions do not
match other scientific evidence or management initiatives. Such findings can be
important for the successful implementation of policy measures.|
