Standards set for Maori wellbeing
|13 Feb 2019 11:33 AM|
Treasury has published a discussion paper prepared by Te Puni Kokiri giving a Maori perspective on the Living Standards Framework.
The framework is an attempt to look at how to better support intergenerational wellbeing and raise living standards.
TPK chief executive Michelle Hippolite says Maori have their own understanding of intergenerational wellbeing that draws on cultural values, beliefs, social norms and indigenous knowledge.
The paper contends Te Tiriti o Waitangi, Te Ao Maori and a whanau-centred approach need to drive Maori wellbeing.Copyright © 2019, UMA Broadcasting Ltd: www.waateanews.com
