Wellington city first to adopt Pacific policy tool

From , 5:03 am on 20 December 2018

New Zealand's Wellington City has become the first municipal body in the country to adopt a formal Pasifika policy analysis tool.

The Kapasa framework as it's known was developed by the Ministry for Pacific Peoples' as a way for government agencies to consider Pacific perspectives when developing policy.

Local councillor Brian Dawson is part of the city's Pacific Advisory Group that helped implement the framework.

He spoke with Dominic Godfrey about what Kapasa means for Wellington's Pasifika community.
