Increasingly, governments are introducing public
policy models of collaborative working to enhance
social and economic outcomes in local development
contexts – a complex and continually evolving policy
implementation pathway along which New Zealand
embarked. This book explores the New Zealand
experience in implementing the 1999 Clark Labour
Government partnership-based public policy for local
economic development - the Regional Partnership
Programme (RPP), with the aim to identify practice
pointers for leaders involved in the ongoing
implementation of partnership-based public policy,
and to provide input into the policy reformulation
process. A number of consistent cross regional
themes emerged from the research, including
unequivocal agreement that policy implementation via
the RPP has been a major catalyst for the formation
of regional partnerships; improved regional
cooperation and collaboration; and enhanced regional
planning. This book is of particular interest and
usefulness to politicians, policy makers and
practitioners working in the field of implementing
public policy, particularly as it relates to matters
of social and economic development.
