From the executive summary:

Strategic background

Auckland Council Group has developed The Auckland Plan 2050, which looks 30 years ahead and outlines the group’s approaches to anticipated priorities and challenges 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 (2018-2028) aligned to this key outcome and set 10 strategic priorities to advance Māori identity and wellbeing, with the most recent 10-year Budget (2021-2031) continuing this connection.

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

Māori Outcomes Reports

The annual Māori Outcomes Reports demonstrate how the council group is delivering against these 10 strategic priorities and their related mana outcomes and showcases what we have achieved for Māori.

The council group published its first Māori Outcomes Report in 2019. This fifth edition flows on from earlier reports and provides information on our performance, including how the council has been supporting a Māori response to the flooding events in early 2023.

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

The 10 Mana Outcomes and Strategic Priorities

Auckland Council Group uses the mana outcomes and strategic priorities set out in Kia Ora Tāmaki Makaurau to guide our progress. The outcomes and priorities are:

Kia Ora te Hononga – Effective Māori participation
Kia Hāngai te Kaunihera – An empowered organisation

Key focus areas for 2022/2023

Increased support for Māori Engagement

During the year the director of Ngā Mātārae commissioned a ‘Review of Auckland Council’s Engagement with Māori’ report. The key objectives of the review were to:

  • clarify and confirm council’s legal and core policy objectives for mana whenua and mataawaka engagement and relationships
  • take stock of Auckland Council’s existing mechanisms and approaches
  • determine the extent to which those mechanisms and approaches achieve their stated partnership and participation objectives
  • identify key gaps and risks across the Auckland Council arrangements. ...
