Abstract

This submission examines the nature and scope of adaptive management in general, and as an approach defined in section 64 of the Exclusive Economic Zone and Continental Shelf (Environmental Effects) Act (“EEZ Act”). It clarifies the prohibition on adaptive management approaches in respect of marine discharge consents under section 87F(4) and addresses the question of whether the conditions proposed by Trans-Transman Resources Limited (“TTRL”) in its 2016 consent applications amount or contribute to an adaptive management approach.

Keywords: adaptive management, precautionary approach, EEZ, exclusive economic zone, marine discharge consents

JEL Classification: K00, K32
