The public sector system needs to respond more effectively to Māori needs and aspirations, and support whānau toward self-determination and intergenerational transformation. More work is necessary to understand how effective public sector initiatives to improve Māori wellbeing objectives have been. A key piece of work in this regard is the Māori Macro Policy Framework, Te Tautuhi-ō-Rongo: which guides policy development through the lens of a positive reading of te Tiriti o Waitangi.

Focus areas for this strategic priority

To increase public sector performance for Māori, Te Puni Kōkiri will support the increased use of Whānau-centred Approaches across public sector agencies, increase its Māori Public Policy Leadership and guidance across the public sector, and ensure there are public sector accountability mechanisms through Māori Wellbeing Monitoring.
