Transition Pathway Action Plans (TPAPs)

Following the finalisation of the Taranaki 2050 Roadmap, the Lead Group (20 volunteers from the seven pou of local business, iwi, community, unions, education, and local and central government who guided the co-creation of the Roadmap) and a sub-group known as the Design Council, developed a ‘framing’ process commonly used in the energy sector. Participants of the Energy workshops that helped co-design the 2050 Roadmap, representing a broad mix of the seven pou and with subject matter expertise, were invited to attend TPAP workshops whilst others attended via an expressions of interest process on the Taranaki 2050 website.
From September-November 2019 framing workshops were held for Energy, Food & Fibre, Innovation/R&D, People & Talent, Infrastructure & Transport and Arts. Workshops for the remaining six pathways – Health & Well-being, Environmental Sciences, Māori Economy, Tourism, Metrics & Evaluation and Regulatory will be held progressively in 2020, with Transition Pathway Action Plans (for workshops held in 2019 and 2020) published sequentially.

Based on the Co-design themes and the emerging opportunities identified in the Taranaki 2050 Roadmap, the methodology took the divergent thinking and opportunities identified in the Roadmap and channelled them into a more convergent set of tangible actions and outputs to define the short-term actions and medium-term strategy needed to achieve the region’s long-term vision for 2050.

Action Framing

Action Framing is a process of gaining alignment on ‘where we want to be?’ and ‘how to get there’. It’s a structured dialogue that creates common understanding on what the opportunity is and agreement and commitment on the path forward.
The process results in a series of outputs that can be applied consistently across all Transition Pathway topics to produce action-oriented outcomes. The outputs are as follows:

  • Action Statement
  • Givens
  • Critical Success Factors
  • Threats and Opportunities analysis
  • Stakeholder Analysis
  • Draft Action Plan.
