Auckland Māori Housing Summit 2019 Programme
10:15 – 10:30 Kāinga Strategic Action Plan Launch
Tony Kake, Independent Māori Statutory Board &
CEO Papakura Marae
The Kāinga Strategic Action Plan was endorsed by the Independent Māori Statutory Board in December 2018 and represents a significant response to the Auckland Māori Housing Summit 2018.
Other entities have endorsed or are considering endorsement of the Kāinga Plan, and a number of actions have already been delivered on with others progressing.
Summit 19 offers the opportunity to launch the Kāinga Plan and set out on another year of action to improve housing outcomes for Māori.
10:30– 12:00 Ministerial Keynote Speeches
Introduction and Scene Setting:
Rau Hoskins, Chair, Te Matapihi and
Hurimoana Dennis, Te Puea Memorial Marae
Speeches from Hon. Phil Twyford Minister of Housing and Hon. Nanaia Mahuta, Associate Minister of Housing
Ministers Twyford and Mahuta attended the 2018 Auckland Māori Housing Summit and indicated a clear direction and commitment to improving housing outcomes for Māori.
This included a determination to speak about kāinga and homes, rather than houses.
The new Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is now formed, with Minister Mahuta appointed to the new role of Associate Minister responsible for that new agency. Today KiwiBuild is a policy in action, whereas last year it was just shaping up.
So how far have we shifted on the move from ‘housing’ to ‘kāinga’?
These Ministers are responsible for significant agencies and resources, and we look forward to hearing a progress update from them at the Auckland Māori Housing Summit 2019.
Speeches Q + A

12:00 – 12:05 Summing Up
12:05– 12:30 Agency Operational Response
Andrew Crisp, CEO, Ministry of Housing and Urban Development
The new Ministry of Housing and Urban Development formed on 1 October 2018, less than a year after the Labour-led government came to power.
It has been coined an agency for change, and it is a change we are all deeply interested in.
As guardians of New Zealand’s housing system and the policy office shaping the impact of everything from Urban Development Authorities to the Auckland Housing Programme, HUD is in a position to effect change.
What are the areas of focus for HUD, and what can we expect in the 12 months?
