The Just Transition Partnership team

The Just Transition Partnership team supports regional partners to understand, plan and navigate their transition in a way that is fair and equitable – a just transition.

The Just Transition Partnership team works across government, across portfolios and agency boundaries to:

  • support regions to plan effectively in response to major economic shocks,
  • align the interests of iwi, regions, sectors, and communities into partnerships that have an agreed vision and pathways to success
  • works alongside other government agencies active in a region to ensure planning and implementation are aligned with central government objectives and funding streams.

What regions are you currently supporting?

We are currently supporting two regions to undertake a just transition:

  • Taranaki, to adapt to the ban on new permits to drill for oil or gas offshore in New Zealand.
  • Southland, to adapt to the planned closure of the New Zealand Aluminium Smelter at Tiwai Point.

View more about these transitions and how the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is leading this work for New Zealand.
