The Cook Islands National Sustainable Development Agenda 2020+ now open for public review.Have your say
Having a say in shaping Cook Islands future is in your hands
with the click of a button over this month.
Since the consultation phase of the Cook Islands National
Sustainable Development Agenda 2020+ in July last year, over 80 consultations
have taken place in Rarotonga and across the Pa Enua, including a forum in
Rarotonga that was open to the public.
This has resulted in three documents that build the National
Sustainable Development Agenda 2020+, the blueprint that guides Cook Islands
towards a vision of wellbeing. The draft versions are now open to the public
for comment for a one-month period.
The three documents are the CINSDA 2020+ also known as the
100-year vision called Te Ara Akapapa’anga Nui 2021 – 2121, the Generational
Plan-Te Ara Akapapa’anga Uki - 2021 – 2046; and the 5-year scorecard Te Ara
Akapapa’anga Iti 2021 – 2026.
Valentino Wichman, the director of Central Policy and
Planning Office of the Office of the Prime Minister, said: “We’re overjoyed to
announce that we are at this phase. We’d like to acknowledge the role that
everyone has played in helping bring our national blueprint to the current
stage we have. Thank you to everyone who has come forth to share their thoughts
and ideas with us all.”
People are asked to share their comments on the contents of
the draft versions. They will be distributed in PDF format to make it easier to
insert comments. Once the comment date has been closed, all comments received
will be submitted to the CISNDA2020+ committee for review and finalising.
The three draft documents will be available in a myriad of
ways to ensure as much people as possible can have access to it. The e-versions will be available for download
through OPM website, OPM Facebook and it can be emailed upon request.
If you would like a hard copy these can be available upon
request from the Office of the Prime Minister.
