The theme of the new National Sustainable Development Agenda 2020+ will be the Ka’a, our traditional rope, made up of many fibres of our tree of life – the coconut tree.  When these fibres come together they form a strong bond.  The NSDA2020+ committee has been formed made up of a cross sector of our nation, these have since been coordinated into sub-committees to carry out key areas of our new plan that will work towards a 100 year vision.

A communications plan for the first phase of the NSDA2020+, the development phase is now in place with products also in development.  The second phase of the communications plan will be developed once the plan is complete and endorsed by the Cook Islands.

Consultation timetables will go out soon with the Launch of Consultations to take place on Friday 31 st July 2020. Consultations will go from August through to December 2020. 

100 year Legacy with 25 year generational plans and 5 yearly reviews have been approved. The Framework will be set within Akapapa’anga and follow a mixed methodology with the Ka’a as the metaphor for our journey.

Have identified research areas to commission. The scanning aspect of the research methodology will  be given out for researchers to carry out in consultations, media and literature- the point will be to identify common issues that come up. The NSDA look towards building a strong relationship with the Cook Islands Research Association

Thank you for taking an interest in your NSDA2020+.
