Te Pūrongo a Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau ngā huanga Māori 2020-2021. Auckland Council Group Māori outcomes report 2020-2021

From the executive summary:

The Auckland Council Group has created The Auckland Plan 2050, a 30-year plan for Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland. The plan sets the council group’s strategic outlook and focuses on six key outcomes, one of which is Māori identity and wellbeing.

The council group’s 10-year budget – the Long-Term Plan 2018-2028 (LTP) – connects to this key outcome and sets 10 strategic priorities to advance Māori identity and wellbeing, with the most recent Long-Term Plan (2021-2031) continuing this connection.

The Māori outcomes performance measurement framework, Kia Ora Tāmaki Makaurau, aligns these strategic priorities with 10 mana outcomes – areas that Māori in Tāmaki Makaurau have identified as mattering most for them.

The Māori Outcomes Report demonstrates how the council group is delivering against these 10 mana outcomes and strategic priorities, and showcases what we have achieved for Māori.

The council group published its first Māori Outcomes Report in 2019. This third edition flows on from earlier reports and provides information on our performance, including how the council has been supporting a Māori response and recovery from COVID-19.

Each report aims to provide a comprehensive picture of annual progress to decision makers across the council group, Māori partners, elected members, leaders in governance, and whānau Māori.

The 10 mana outcomes and strategic priorities

The strategic priorities, which are now connected to their mana outcomes, were set to guide progress over three years, in keeping with the refresh cycle of the budget.

This report reflects on year three (FY2020-2021) of this approach. The outcomes and priorities are:
Kia ora te umanga – Māori business, tourism, and employment
Kia ora te marae – Marae development
Kia ora te reo – Te reo Māori
Kia ora te taiao – Kaitiakitanga
Kia ora te kāinga – Papakāinga and Māori housing
Kia ora te rangatahi – Realising rangatahi potential
Kia ora te ahurea – Māori identity and culture
Kia ora te whānau – Tamariki and whānau wellbeing
Kia ora te hononga – Effective Māori participation
Kia hāngai te kaunihera – An empowered organisation.

During 2020-2021, in addition to our ongoing initiatives and activities, we engaged with mana whenua entities and Māori communities who are targeting resources towards these priority areas.

Key findings for 2020-2021

  • Kia Ora Tāmaki Makaurau, the Māori outcomes performance measurement framework, provides clear direction for the council group by identifying focus areas to best influence and channel resources. Ngā Mātārae has completed this framework, achieving a significant milestone.
  • While COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted Māori, it has also provided the council group with an opportunity to collaborate more closely with Māori entities.
  • Learnings from this collaboration have proven valuable as we move to a Māori-led funding approach, by partnering with Māori organisations with similar aspirations and outcomes.
  • The Māori Outcomes Fund has achieved its highest ever spend – approximately $17.6 million. ...
