Section three: Looking forward to 2017 and beyond
A significant focus will be on action to begin implementation of the Strategy. This will involve the development of the Strategy Outcomes Framework which will run in parallel to work already underway to develop a Disability Data and Evidence Plan. An update of the DAP will also be undertaken.
The development of the Outcomes Framework and the Disability Data and Evidence Plan
In November 2016, the Chief Executives’ Group on Disability Issues approved combining the development of the Strategy Outcomes Framework and the Disability Data and Evidence Plan in a single programme of work. This approach will make sure that the Outcomes Framework is supported by the Disability Data and Evidence Plan.
The Outcomes Framework will outline how progress against the Strategy outcome areas and actions in the DAP are monitored. The Disability Data and Evidence Plan will focus on how gaps in information will be addressed.
The New Zealand Disability Strategy Revision Reference Group will provide strategic advice on the Outcomes Framework, focusing on priorities for monitoring the Strategy. The Working Group will provide technical advice on the Disability Data and Evidence Plan, focusing on how gaps in data and evidence should be addressed.
The update of the Disability Action Plan 2014-2018
In October 2016, Cabinet approved the DAP as the primary vehicle for implementing the new Strategy over the next decade. The DAP will be organised around the Strategy’s eight outcome areas. As a transition measure under the revised Strategy, a limited update of the DAP will be undertaken in the first half of 2017.
