Report: TR 2019/07

This document summarises latest results from the Waikato Progress Indicators (WPI) – Tupuranga Waikato monitoring programme, updated in July 2018. The WPI is an online dashboard of 32 environmental, social and economic indicators, see www.waikatoregion.govt.nz/wpi/(external link). It provides a valuable tool for monitoring regional progress, including progress towards Waikato Regional Council’s Strategic Direction 2016-2019 goals for a healthy environment, strong economy and vibrant communities.
This update compares the latest available results for each of the WPI indicators with 2006-07 baseline results, enabling regional progress to be assessed over a decade period. Around half of the WPI indicators also have historical data going back to 2001 or earlier, giving a longer-term view. The aim is to inform the Waikato public, planners and decision-makers of genuine progress against key indicators of wellbeing.
 Council’s Strategic Direction 2016-2019 was adopted in December 2016: https://www.waikatoregion.govt.nz/council/about-us/wrc-strategy/(external link)
