The 2019 ‘wellbeing’ Budget is just the start of a whole system change and wellbeing approach, Hon Grant Robertson told an IPANZ audience on 21 February. [see his entire speech as an attachment below]
He said the wellbeing approach would involve the whole of government working together as never before, and involving the private sector, NGOs, local government, iwi and business.
“A wellbeing approach means more robust financial and economic analysis, not less. It means analysing the whole system to understand how policy affects people, not just measuring impacts within agency silos."
