ABSTRACT
In June 2006 six iwi and Māori authorities were engaged by Te Puni Kōkiri to participate in a trial to develop an understanding of co-production (joint development of policy and service delivery to realise shared strategic outcomes) in a Māori context. Co-production reflects a new approach, which is neither prescriptive nor intervention based, but is a shared outcomes method in which relationships are strengthened through redundant planning and action for joint outcomes. It is expected to become a way of working with iwi and Māori authorities to enable them to be influential in, if not the co-architects of, the design of policies and programmes that concern their people and their own resources. Te Puni Kōkiri considers co-production has the potential to become a successful way in which iwi and Māori authorities and government joint ventures can accelerate Māori development aspirations. It is also an opportunity for co-production partners to engage in developing new Māori policy. Despite this, undertaking co-production has been, and is likely to continue to be, far more challenging in practice than thinking about it as a concept (Martin and Boaz 2000).
