Give us your feedback on our proposed topic for the Long-term Insights Briefing  

We would like to thank those that took the time to provide submissions on our Long-term Insights Briefing (LTIB) topic: Improving Pacific data equity - opportunities to enhance the future of Pacific wellbeing.   

Overall, the feedback showed plenty of support for the topic and provided an insight into how Pacific data shapes the lives of our communities.

You told us that Pacific data equity is crucial to informing future investment, policy and legislation and is an important aspect of enabling Pacific wellbeing.

There was general agreement that Pacific data is a living taonga that has the ability to have real-life impacts on our Pacific peoples. Many also identified that the topic area must be developed through meaningful collaboration with our communities.

We are currently taking the feedback we received as a basis for our Long-term Insights Briefing, which will be developed over the coming months. As part of this process, we will continue to engage with our stakeholders and communities to ensure the briefing reflects the collective views of Pacific peoples.

We look forward to engaging with you further. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please email the LTIB team at [email protected]

While consultation closed on February 11, we are still wanting to hear your views. You can still make a submission through the feedback form below, or by emailing [email protected]

Frequently asked questions

The Long-term Insights Briefings (LTIBs) are a new government initiative requiring government agencies to develop and share insights on the trends, risks and opportunities that could affect Aotearoa. LTIBs aim to promote long-term thinking so that the public sector can respond to future change and deliver sustainable benefits for people in Aotearoa.

Government agencies are required to publish a LTIB at least once every three years. The purpose of the LTIB is to share: 

  • information about medium and long-term trends, risks and opportunities that may affect Aotearoa; 
  • information and impartial analysis, including policy options for responding to these matters. 

The LTIB is a way for the public to contribute meaningfully on what matters the most for the future of New Zealand. The insights and recommendations we make as part of the LTIB will be used as a key resource and evidence base to inform decision-making.

The Ministry of Pacific People’s proposed topic for our LTIB is  Improving Pacific data equity: Opportunities to enhance the future of Pacific wellbeing.  

Pacific data equity has not yet been explored at the government level. As stewards of Pacific peoples in Aotearoa, we aim to ensure the government generates accurate, relevant, and representative data to support better decisions that affect Pacific peoples, now and for the future.  

Our briefing could explore:   

  • how the New Zealand government has been, and is mandated to, collect and analyse Pacific data and what have been the key developments 
  • how data policies and methods could impact Pacific peoples’ wellbeing   
  • future opportunities and risks in relation to Pacific data equity, and what this means for the future wellbeing of Pacific peoples in Aotearoa. 

This briefing is an opportunity to better understand what matters to Pacific peoples about the future, and the impact of future change to help guide and influence positive and meaningful policy for better Pacific wellbeing outcomes.   

We need to ensure that the briefing is relevant and focused on what matters to Pacific peoples and Pacific communities in Aotearoa. We want to hear directly from you about your views on how Pacific data impacts your life, families and communities.  

The feedback we receive as part of this first consultation will be used to inform what issues we prioritise and to develop the content of the draft LTIB. 

There will be two phases of public consultation:

  • Phase One is now open and we invite you to have your say below by 28 January 2022. This initial consultation will give us feedback and insights on the subject, scope and focus of our Briefing.  
  • Phase Two in early 2022 will provide an opportunity for you to provide feedback on the draft briefing content and help us present a community-driven product to Parliament. We aim to complete the final Briefing by 30 June 2022.   

The first round of consultation will run from 29 November, 2021 to 28 January, 2022.
