Strengthen partnerships with Māori across the infrastructure system of Aotearoa New Zealand

Section: 5. Strengthening partnerships with and opportunities for Māori


  1. Undertake a ‘State of Play’ of current Māori engagement activity for infrastructure to help inform and educate readers on how infrastructure providers can engage and work with Māori in a way that works for Māori and infrastructure providers.
  2. Identify a lead government agency that will establish a Māori advisory group to develop a framework for strengthening partnerships with Māori in infrastructure planning and delivery. The framework should be based on Te Tiriti o Waitangi and tikanga Māori and consistent with an all-of-government approach. The advisory group should also consider the evolving role of Māori in the infrastructure system and options for ongoing governance and oversight of the framework.
