Third National Action Plan 2018-2020

New Zealand’s third National Action Plan is under development. 

On Monday 2 July, the Expert Advisory Panel (EAP), officials and representatives from each of the workshops came together to work with the themes and explore options for potential commitments in the next National Action Plan.

On Wednesday 11 July the EAP and officials met again to continue that work.  Through those conversations, three areas of focus for the plan have been agreed.  Those are participation in democracy, collaboration to develop policy and services, and transparency and accountability.

During April and May 2018 New Zealanders contributed 449 ideas, posted on-line and developed at workshops, to contribute to the next Action Plan. The ideas have been grouped into themes by the Expert Advisory Panel working with officials. You can see the themes, ideas linked to themes and flip charts from the workshops in May 2018 here:
