Mixed Methods Research: A comprehensive approach for study into the New Zealand voluntary carbon marketDownload
Climate change and solutions to solving this wicked problem require a mixed methods research approach that draws on quantitative and qualitative inquiry together. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate the applicability (and effectiveness) of a mixed methods approach applied to research...
In 2009, New Zealand’s (NZ) new National-led government abandoned the Carbon Neutral Public Service (CNPS) program, a Labour-led government initiative intended to help Government achieve carbon neutrality within its core agencies. This short analysis article provides an overview and brief...
