Te Koutu Mana Tutara O Te Ipukarea- Office of the Prime Minister
Turou, Oro mai!
Hope you are well and in good health!
The Cook Islands is embarking on an exciting journey in its development history.
The National Sustainable Development Plan 2016-2020 (Te Kaveinga Nui) is coming to an end this year and we are wanting to start planning where our country will head into the future and what will be the best path forward.
The Cook Islands is at a crossroads of change. The economy has been booming and the country has graduated to developed nation status according to the OECD but where to from here? The National Sustainable Development Agenda 2020+ (NSDA 2020+) is a new sustainable development direction for our Nation. It will delve into our countries development challenges and use the lessons from past development and best practice to propose an innovative way forward.
At the heart of the 2020+ Agenda will be the 100 year Legacy – a living framework which will guide the Cook Islands into the future. The framework will center on a paradigm shift from a development agenda influenced by Economics and Development partner’s priorities to one that focuses on the well-being of our families and people – the Wellbeing economy. This will be underpinned by a strong emphasis on Reo Maori and Akono’anga Maori together with our natural environment.
Get involved – come to the NSDA 2020+ launch of our consultations
