Erickson (global change, U. of Waikato), Philip R. Berke (land use and environmental planning, U. of North Carolina), Auckland planning consultant Janet L. Crawford, and Jennifer E. Dixon (planning, U. of Auckland) focus on the quality of plans for environmental stability produced under the planning regime established by the 1991 Resource Management Act, and factors of governance that influence that quality. The Introduction traces the course of events in New Zealand between the 1992 Rio conference and the 1991 Act. Then sections look at approaches to planning and governance, intergovernmental planning within New Zealand, plan quality and capability under the Act, and four local case studies.
