NZ Productivity Commission: A Fair Chance for All

The New Zealand Productivity Commission was asked by the government to investigate the dynamics and drivers of persistent disadvantage and to make recommendations to help break or mitigate the cycle of disadvantage within people’s lifetimes and across generations. A draft Terms of Reference were released in August 2021. 

Along with many others, the WWP provided feedback and has met several times with the Commission to explore links between this work and the WWP. The final Terms of Reference set the framework for the inquiry, which has been underway since.  A report and preliminary inquiry recommendations will be released later this month and we look forward to seeing what has been proposed. We encourage everybody with an interest in achieving wellbeing and equitable outcomes for everybody to keep a close eye on this report.
