In February we published our first progress report since the WWP started in 2020. The report acts as both an accountability document for our funders and stakeholders, as well as a summary of the region’s overall wellbeing progress. You can read the full report here Waikato Wellbeing Project | Waikato Wellbeing Project
The report recaps the development of the WWP since then, including the development of our core operating model and strategic framework. The report shows the project’s ongoing evolution as we learn more about what drives wellbeing and sustainable development in the Waikato, and what we can do to support those who are leading that change. The report then summarises the Waikato region’s progress against out ten SDG targets and goals, looking at these from a Waikato, Aotearoa | New Zealand and global perspective. Alongside these metrics, we have captured reflections from our manu taki, bringing together both quantitative and qualitative aspects of our wellbeing. By doing this, we hope to provide a broad perspective to readers on some of the dimensions on wellbeing, showing the great progress the region is making, where the challenges still are and what some of the region’s wellbeing leaders really think. An example for SDG 15 (Life on Land) is shown above, which reflections from manu taki Bruce Clarkson.
The balance of the report highlights the specific projects and initiatives we have been working on since 2021, celebrating the progress made in our key priority areas as are reported on in our regular updates.
