  • The mountain land recreationist in New Zealand : the first of three volumes on the current status and future direction of mountain land recreation in New Zealand

    Aukerman, Robert; Davison, Jenny

    Book
    Lincoln University

    Barring love and war, few enterprises are undertaken with such abandon, or by such diverse individuals, or with so paradoxical a mixture of appetite and altruism, as that group of avocations known as outdoor recreation. It is by common consent, a good thing for people to get back to nature. But wherein lies the goodness, and what can be done to encourage its pursuit? (Leopold 1949). In 1949 Aldo Leopold asked this question. It is the basic and essential question which must be answered in order to serve the recreational needs of people. The question remains unanswered. The "goodness" lies hidden somewhere in a variety of needs which people have, needs which, when fulfilled, help make life rich and satisfying. In our report we have not attempted to answer Leopold's question. We have attempted to show just how close we are today in identifying "wherein lies the goodness and what can be done to encourage its pursuit" for people seeking recreation in New Zealand's mountain lands. - More specifically, this report sets out to present the following: - What is known and what information is available in New Zealand. - A critical review of selected aspects of the information and how it is being used. - What information is not available. - The implications for planners, management and the public recreationist of having or not having the information available. - What needs to be known. - The present trend toward obtaining the information. - Some tested and suggested methods of obtaining the more critically needed information. In general we have found the task of identifying what is known about New Zealand mountain land recreationists far too easy, because little such knowledge is available. While this was a relatively easy; albeit time consuming, task for us, the implication is that those who must plan and manage for New Zealand’s mountain land recreationists are faced with a very difficult task. For the less one knows about the recreational requirements of the people for whom one is planning and managing, the greater are the chances for mistakes. A fuller knowledge of the recreationist and his requirements also fits into the broad scale of land-use planning. We can then balance what needs to be provided to meet the recreationists’ requirements (which may be simple rather than extravagant) and what can be provided. Some recreational activities may be damaging to a fragile mountain environment, even destructive of the very experience sought. Thus the physical resource itself is a real constraint. Again, recreation may compete or conflict with other valued land uses such as nature preservation, soil and water conservation practices, forestry and farming. However, individual recreation activities may be co-ordinated and integrated to some degree with these uses in multiple-use practices. Other very real limitations are the money and manpower available. This report is presented to clarify what is known and what needs to be known about mountain land recreationists in an attempt to help planners and managers at all levels in their task of helping people enjoy life. If any part of this report contributes to this endeavour we consider ourselves truly lucky. For we too are in love with the New Zealand mountain lands and seek them for our recreation.

  • The Right to Food Guidelines, Democracy and Citizen Participation: Country Case Studies

    Cresswell Riol, Katharine S. E. (2017)

    Book
    University of Otago

    It is now more than a decade since the Right to Food Guidelines was negotiated, agreed and adopted internationally by states. This book provides a review of its objectives and the extent of success of its implementation. The focus is on the first key guideline – "Democracy, good governance, human rights and the rule of law" – with an emphasis on civil society participation in global food governance. Case studies of the five BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) are presented. These represent major emerging economies that blur the line between the Global North and South, and exhibit different levels of human rights realization. The book first provides an overview of the right to adequate food, accountability and democracy, and an introduction to the history of the development of the right to adequate food and the Right to Food Guidelines. It presents a historical synopsis of each of the BRICS states’ experience with the right to adequate food and an analysis of their related periodic reporting to the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, as well as a specific assessment of their progress in regard to the first guideline. The discussion then focuses on the effectiveness of the Right to Food Guidelines as both a policy-making and monitoring tool, based on the analysis of the guidelines and the BRICS states.

  • Geology, landforms and soils of the Waipara and Waikari regions of North Canterbury with an emphasis on lands used for viticulture

    Tonkin, P.; Webb, T.; Almond, Peter C.; Creasy, Glen; Harrison, Roland; Hassall, Leanne J.; Smith, Carol

    Book
    Lincoln University

    Soils play an important role in grape growing and wine making. Soils anchor the vine and act a reservoir of water and nutrients essential for growth. Soils influence the vine microclimate and therefore wine characteristics. ... This report is organized into 16 chapters, and these can be grouped into three part. The first part includes this introduction, and chapters on geological history, landform history and and overview of the soils within the the Waipara and Waikari regions of North Canterbury. This last chapter includes a summary table listing the landforms, regolith, soil and their New Zealand Soil Classification and maps of the landforms and dominant soil series associated with wine growing in North Canterbury. The second part of the report is ordered using the landform relationships of the predominant soils established in the previous section. This is referred to as a physiographic order from the highest and steepest parts of the landscape to the youngest surfaces alongside streams and rivers and on recently active fans. There are eight sections in this part and all available information on the soils’ morphology (description) and chemistry are included in this section up to the time of completion of this report. The third part of the report includes three chapters. The first section is a discussion of soil mapping and the definition of terms associated with soil mapping. These include field identification of soil profiles and soil profile description and the definition of soil horizon notation used in this report and field determination of soil texture, consistence and structure. A simple field method for determining the presence of primary and secondary calcium carbonate using a dilute acid is described. This chapter concludes with the New Zealand Soil Classification (Hewitt, 2010) relevant to the soils of North Canterbury described in this report. The next chapter is a discussion on the interpretation of soil chemistry data. The final chapter in this section comprises tables listing the vineyards of the Waipara and Waikari regions of North Canterbury grouped by the dominant soil or combinations of soils within vineyards. The location of Waipara vineyards are plotted on three maps, of the Omihi Valley, north of the Waipara River and the southern part of the Omihi valley, and south of the Waipara River. This information was last updated in January 2014.

  • Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail: User Survey 2015/16

    Wilson, J.

    Book
    Lincoln University

    This report presents the findings from a 2015/16 survey of users on the Alps 2 Ocean (A2O) cycle trail. The A2O, running from Aoraki/Mt Cook to Oamaru, is the longest trail in the New Zealand Cycle Trail (NZCT) network. The survey profiled current users (demographics, importance of A2O for area visit) and described their use of the A2O (amount ridden, group size, previous A2O experience, ride logistics, other activities). The survey also measured satisfaction and expectations relating to a variety of A2O amenity and support services. Other questions explored impressions of the A2O more generally and within the context of user experience of other cycle trails in the NZCT network.
