The strategy is a truly collaborative effort between iwi and hapu, the business sector, central government agencies and local authorities. It has been designed in partnership as aspired for in Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

It was put together after extensive consultation with a broad range of representatives from business and the public sector, which included three wānanga held in Wairoa, Hastings and Masterton.

Why Matariki?

Partnership by co-design Values and worldview underpinning the strategy and its actions are an expression of co-design, and the implementation and monitoring are an inclusive collaboration. A treaty principle.
Outcomes for every household and every whānau All actions, initiatives and projects in the Action Plan must provide outcomes in line with the vision.
Build our people’s capability There must be an emphasis on developing our people alongside infrastructure, assets and businesses.
Equality A treaty principle, this requires reflection on who the intended audience and beneficiaries are, and a commitment to that being inclusive and equitable.
