  Issues we're working on


Ecologic carries out research to promote sustainable development. 

In September 2007, we are finishing a major research project on Institutions for Sustainable Development, which investigated both Nordic approaches to collaborative governance and how to overcome obstacles to market based instruments.

This work was funded primarily by the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology - the New Zealand Government's main science funder.  We had additional support from a number of other partners from government and business.

We are currently seeking new funding to carry on our work on Collaborative Governance.
