Making New Zealand Strong

This discussion paper was written by Dr John Peet on behalf of the interim board of SANZ in response to two papers published by the New Zealand Government regarding its approach to sustainable development. The paper was presented to the interim board on 11 April 2003 and an earlier version was also presented at a Sustainable Development Forum held at the University of Auckland in November 2002.

This discussion paper was followed-up by Dr Peet in 2006 in a report titled Future Wellbeing: a Sustainability Stocktake of New Zealand.
